Nnedi Okorafor sets her novel Who Fears Death in a future, post-technology Africa. Part adventure, part science fiction, part magical fantasy, this tale of an outcast young woman’s coming of age is imaginative with complex characters and a compelling story that sustain the reader even in dark scenes involving ethnic hatred and violence.
