Open Water Summary:

WINNER OF THE COSTA FIRST NOVEL AWARD A NATIONAL BOOK FOUNDATION 5 UNDER 35 WINNER OF THE BRITISH BOOK AWARD FOR DEBUT FICTION “Open Water is tender poetry, a love song to Black art and thought, an exploration of intimacy and vulnerability between two young artists learning to be soft with each other in a world that hardens against Black people.”—Yaa Gyasi, author of Homegoing In a crowded London pub, two young people meet. 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—and both are trying to make their mark in a world 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, and over the course of a year they find their relationship tested by forces beyond their control. Narrated with deep intimacy, Open Water is at once an achingly beautiful love story and a potent insight into race and masculinity that asks what it means to be a person in a world that sees you only as a Black body; to be vulnerable when you are only respected for strength; to find safety in love, only to lose it. With gorgeous, soulful intensity, and blistering emotional intelligence, Caleb Azumah Nelson gives a profoundly sensitive portrait of romantic love in all its feverish waves and comforting beauty. This is one of the most essential debut novels of recent years, heralding the arrival of a stellar and prodigious young talent.

Open Water Debacle Summary:

This story gives an account of contentious interactions with religions, races, cultures, societies, politics, people and nations in the future. The whole point of the story is for the unique islanders to give some thought about broader societies to discover greater aspects of civilisation, question now and not much later what society means and how important it is to build human instincts towards tolerance and integration rather than clash with cultures when it comes to impact in some future date as this world is meant for change. Typically, islanders known as Divehīn are a small but a unique people with a common ethnic background of religion, race, culture, history, language, autonomy or lifestyle. Society means comparatively a community of oneness for the islanders who are unaware of other cultures and people. This story raises all debates to enlighten the islanders towards multi-culture and the value it holds for future in an extremely delicate environment of low-lying coral islands in the Maldives.
