Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah

According to the New York Times, Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah’s bestselling debut Friday Black is “a powerful and important and strange and beautiful collection of stories meant to be read right now... an unbelievable debut, one that announces a new and necessary American voice... Adjei-Brenyah, with his own “maroon of life,” is here to signal a warning, or perhaps just to say this is what it feels like, in stories that move and breathe and explode on the page.” Nana is from Spring Valley, New York, and graduated from SUNY Albany and went on to receive his MFA from Syracuse University.
