Description


Set in Lesotho and South Africa, Courtney McDermott's debut story collection unveils a perspective of African life that is both startling and intimate. An Afrikaner woman sleeps with a shotgun because she fears black Africans, an undead garbage man "saves" lives by taking them, a modern day Cinderella struggles to escape the bitter residual constraints of colonialism. These twenty-two tales embrace graphic realism, energetic bursts of truths that may otherwise go unnoticed, and magic.

“McDermott’s rare talent for conveying a crisp image of a scene shines in this collection of fresh, tightly woven stories.”
— Dindy Yokel, ForeWord Reviews

"A wonderful debut by a fearless and gifted writer." —Notre Dame Review
