Synopsis:

Ranging from the Colombian slums to New York City, from the streets of Tehran to a boat in the South China Sea, an inventive collection of short fiction explores the complexities of human relationships and the challenges we face, in a volume that includes the title story, in which refugees aboard a cowded fishing trawler confront a harrowing choice. A first collection. 50,000 first printing.


Review:

"...grapple[s] with the subtleties of authenticity..."
