'You don't read this novel. You swan dive into it, then gasp in wonder' Marlon James, author of A Brief History of Seven Killings

'I'm in awe of Osunde's writing ... I can't wait for others to delve into the joyous, defiant world she has rendered for her debut novel, VAGABONDS!' Caleb Azumah Nelson, author of Open Water

'Every year promises the birth of the next literary superstar... Eloghosa Osunde's VAGABONDS! is an exceptional debut' i-D

'A feast of a book, a marvelous ode to spirits and outsiders that is irreverent (and painfully funny) while being serious enough to drill a hole in one's chest. There is nothing in the world like this book' Lesley Nneka Arimah, author of What It Means When A Man Falls From The Sky

'A novel as vivid and varied as the city itself' Harper's Bazaar

'Osunde's gasp-inducing novel takes us to the Lagos streets with an ensemble of misfits and vagabonds, each with their own stories of queerness, personal demons, all-consuming love... Immerse yourself in Osunde's kaleidoscopic world' AnOther Magazine

'An explosive portrait of Nigeria that will blow your mind - in prose that feels so alive it practically vibrates off the page. A masterpiece' Lidia Yuknavitch, author of The Book of Joan

'A dazzling, hypnotic portrait of lives lived on the margins' T Kira Madden, author of Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls

'A vibrant blend of big-city life and contemporary mythology' New York Times

'Osunde's writing is rich and sensorial ... Vagabonds! is alive with magical potential in the face of oppression' Creative Review
