Publisher Description

An alluring new collection from the author of the New York Times Notable Book, Midnight Robber

Nalo Hopkinson (Brown Girl in the Ring, The Salt Roads, Sister Mine) is an internationally-beloved storyteller. Hailed by the Los Angeles Times as having "an imagination that most of us would kill for," her Afro-Caribbean, Canadian, and American influences shine in truly unique stories that are filled with striking imagery, unlikely beauty, and delightful strangeness.

In this long-awaited collection, Hopkinson continues to expand the boundaries of culture and imagination. Whether she is retelling The Tempest as a new Caribbean myth, filling a shopping mall with unfulfilled ghosts, or herding chickens that occasionally breathe fire, Hopkinson continues to create bold fiction that transcends boundaries and borders.

Very talented author

I received a free copy of this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

What an imagination! This is the first book that I have read by this author and she is an exceptionally skilled writer with a unique writing style. I had a great time reading this one.

There are some pretty disturbing scenes scattered throughout this book, so I would not recommend this to people with a weak stomach for depravity, human based or otherwise. Normally, I would subtract a star on my review since I didn't enjoy that aspect of it, but I am leaving it on because I enjoyed her writing style so much.
