Description

Rom the highly acclaimed author of Atlas of Unknowns (Dazzling . . . One of the most exciting debut novels since Zadie Smiths White Teeth San Francisco Chronicle; An astonishment of a debut Junot Daz), a bravura collection of short stories set in locales as varied as London, Sierra Leone, and the American Midwest that captures the yearning and dislocation of young men and women around the world.

In Lion and Panther in London, a turn-of-the-century Indian wrestler arrives in London desperate to prove himself champion of the world, only to find the city mysteriously absent of challengers. In Light & Luminous, a gifted dance instructor falls victim to her own vanity when a student competition allows her a final encore. In The Script logical Review: A Last Letter from the Editor, a young man obsessively studies his fathers handwriting in hopes of making sense of his death. And in the marvelous 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 exuberance and compassion, Tania James once again draws us into the lives of damaged, driven, and beautifully complicated characters who quietly strive for human connection.
