The much-anticipated novel The Death of Vivek Oji came out Tuesday.

Akwaeke Emezi’s sophomore effort explores, unsurprisingly, loss; Vivek, the title character, leaves behind parents, other family members, and friends.

But more so, the author tells NPR, it’s a novel about crossing boundaries: cultural, gender, and sexual.

You can preview this exploration in an excerpt from The Death of Vivek Oji in the New York Times as well as Emezi’s interview with Ari Shapiro on All Things Considered
