Lesley Nneka Arimah - Waht it Means When a Man Falls From the SkyWhat it Means When a Man Falls From the Sky

Lesley Nneka Arimah

Arresting and sophisticated storytelling in this debut collection of short stories, most of which are set against set against the backdrop of Nigeria or the USA. The opening of 'Light' is a example of Arimah's powerful prose."When Enebeli Okwara sent his girl out in the world, he did not know what the world did to daughters. He did not know how quickly it would wick the dew off her, how she would be returned to him hollowed out, relieved of her better parts."
