Obsessed with girls, devoid of muscles and faced with hostile teachers and a reading disability, 15-year-old Danesh has been struggling to survive life in the lower bowels of the Essequibo high school system. In a community wracked by alcoholism, suicide and corruption, he sees no purposeful path for himself. Then, Medusa, a creature of savage beauty and determination, crashes into his life and reveals a whole new world beneath the muddy waves – a world full of wonder, adventure and the possibility of becoming a better person. But Danesh soon learns that the path before him is not an easy one and to get there he just may have to redefine what it means to be a hero. With clear Lovecraftian and mythical influences, Imam Baksh weaves a compelling tale that creates something completely new. The Dark of the Sea is a fantastical, fast-paced adventure that is buoyed by dark humour. The Dark of the Sea is the winner of the 2018 Burt Award for Caribbean Young Adult Literature. Imam Baksh is also the author of Children of the Spider (2015).

Imam Baksh is a writer from Guyana. He enjoys tales about magic, monsters and heroes of all kinds. He's interested in history and how the world works and enjoys research. His debut novel, Children of the Spider, won the 2015 Burt Award for Caribbean Young Adult Literature and The Dark of the Sea, won the same prize in 2018.
