After the Flare gets starred review in Kirkus

I was psyched to receive a great positive review of After the Flare in Kirkus Reviews:

Olukotun manages these complex threads of story with a wily grace, weaving them into a surprising and briskly paced plot while also reveling in an abundance of inventive, vivid detail. In this version of Nigeria, a fascination with tribal identity exists alongside new technological devices that bring together animals and computer technology—geckolike phones, a malicious hacking spider—and a complicated monetary system that combines cowrie shells with block chains.

The book comes out in September. You can pre-order it here (Amazon) and here (Independent bookstore).
