Uzodinma Iweala unveils official author photographs ahead of the March 2018 release of his highly-anticipated novel, Speak No Evil.

While there is no chance in the world that Iweala photos could top Chibundu Onuzu’s ultra-chic author photos, Iweala totally nails his signature rugged-novelist look in these photos.

Speak No Evil comes 12 years after Iweala published his bestselling debut, Beast of No Nation. The novel tells the story of Niru, a gay Nigerian teenager, and the fallout with his family when his father finds out he is gay.

The unveiling of these photographs tells us that publicity for the new book is underway and that the first set of reviews should be coming pretty soon. You should also expect to begin seeing announcements of book signing events. It might be a good idea to follow him on Instagram so that you’d be aware whenever he comes to your city.

Goodreads is currently giving away copies of the novel for free. You can enter to win a copy here.

Speak No Evil is available for pre-order here.
