All Over Again is an enchanting slice of boyhood. Rooted in over 30 years of theatre, prose and poetry performance writing, All Over Again is A-dZiko Simba Gegele’s exuberantly humorous debut novel.
This episodic novel is a charming story with a bold narrative style that pulls you in. Set in a fictional rural village in Jamaica, but relevant to youth across the world, All Over Again masterfully creates the wonderfully turbulent world of teenage boyhood. All Over Again is a story of growth, loss, love and triumph as it explores the joys and insecurities of youth.
The novel is the first prize-winner of the inaugural Burt Award for Caribbean Literature (2014) and an excerpt was included in the Harvard Review (Issue 45).
