The Unmooring

The Unmooring

by Adebe Derango-Adem




In ways both forthright and nuanced, and with a nod to her African heritage, The Unmooring is a voyage into race and metaphysics, love and loss. Troubling the edges of identity and otherness, The Unmooring is a book that opens the floodgates of the self, revealing the various watershed moments that concurrently force us to enter what we are estranged from, and renounce the anchors we no longer need.
