The winner of the 2021 First Novel Award, Caleb Azumah Nelson joins Toppings to celebrate the paperback release of his brilliant Open Water

Two young people meet at a pub in South East London. Both are Black British, both won scholarships to private schools where they struggled to belong, both are now artists – he a photographer, she a dancer – trying to make their mark in a city that by turns celebrates and rejects them. Tentatively, tenderly, they fall in love. But two people who seem destined to be together can still be torn apart by fear and violence.
