A24, the company that produced the Oscar-winning 2016 film, took to social media to announce the book, featuring the film’s screenplay, stills from the film, Academy Award acceptance speeches, and an essay from critic Hilton Als, as well as a foreword from Ocean.
The film follows a young black man’s journey to adulthood, exploring themes of cyclical identity, masculinity, guilt, parenthood and love.
