Praise for Ada’s Room

“Thrillingly, astonishingly original. You will not have read anything quite like this before.” —R.O. Kwon, author of The Incendiaries

“[A] novel that demands a great deal emotionally and intellectually of the reader, but its boldness and ambition leave an indelible imprint. A rule-shattering novel about the presentness of the past.” —Kirkus

“An impressive and highly original work, brimming over with energy.” – Times Literary Supplement
“Sharon Dodua Otoo is the new voice in German literature…. Her debut novel goes big.” —Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger
“Otoo is a singular voice in contemporary German literature…. [A] daring experiment, not unlike Yaa Gyasi’s debut novel, Homegoing.” —Der Tagesspiegel
“By effortlessly moving between centuries in her novel, Sharon Dodua Otoo reveals not only the weight of history that comes to bear on a young Black woman in dire circumstances who is looking for a home – it also demonstrates which patterns have remained powerful to this day.” —Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
