Some reviews:

“Evocative and affecting.”―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Remarkable…. Okeowo writes with beauty and grace…. Refreshingly, she does not give in to easy answers…. Clear-eyed, lyrical, observant, and compassionate—reportage at its finest.”Kirkus (starred review)

“A Moonless, Starless Sky is a captivating look at the on-the- ground effects of extremist groups and the people who live their lives in spite of them.”Booklist

    Dear Ms. Okeowo,

    I’m so excited about your book and look forward to getting my hands on a copy very soon. I wanted to let you know that the tab to the top right of the book image entitled “More about the book here” doesn’t work.

    We met, or actually walked side-by-side, briefly at Uganda’s first Pride march in early August 2012. I greatly appreciated your coverage of that momentous day, celebrating activist-friend-heroes. It has been a great pleasure to read and discover more of your excellent work since then. I hope to cross paths again someday, perhaps on a reading tour or another memorable, world-changing day. Congratulations on the publishing of your book!

    Best, David
