Overview

From the acclaimed author of "Atlas of Unknowns," a bravura collection of short stories--set, by turns, in London, Sierra Leone, and the American Midwest--that captures the yearning and dislocation of young men and women around the world.
In "Light & Luminous," a gifted instructor of Indian dance falls victim to the vanity and insecurities that have followed her into middle age. In ""The Scriptological Review" A Last Letter from the Editor," a damaged young man obsessively studies his father's handwriting in hopes of making sense of his suicide. And in "What to Do with Henry," a white woman from Ohio takes in the illegitimate child her husband left behind in Sierra Leone, as well as an orphaned chimpanzee who comes to anchor this strange new family. With "Aerogrammes, " Tania James once again introduces us to a host of delicate, complicated, and beautifully realized characters who find themselves separated from their friends, families, and communities by race, pride, and grief.
