Bookseller Rating: 5-star rating
Quantity Available: 1

Book Description: Akashic Books,U.S., United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 209 x 133 mm. Brand New Book. Compelling and gorgeously written, this is a coming-of-age novella like no other. Chris Abani explores the depths of loss and exploitation with what can only be described as a knowing tenderness. An extraordinary, necessary book. --Cristina Garcia, author of Dreaming in Cuban Abani s voice brings perspective to every moment, turning pain into a beautiful painterly meditation on loss and aloneness. --Aimee Bender, author of The Girl in the Flammable Skirt Abani s empathy for Abigail s torn life is matched only by his honesty in portraying it. Nothing at all is held back. A harrowing piece of work. --Peter Orner, author of The Esther Stories Tough, spirited, and fiercely independent Abigail is brought as a teenager to London from Nigeria by relatives who attempt to force her into prostitution. She flees, struggling to find herself in the shadow of a strong but dead mother. In spare yet haunting and lyrical prose reminiscent of Marguerite Duras, Abani brings to life a young woman who lives with a strength and inner light that will enlighten and uplift the reader.Chris Abani is a poet and novelist and the author, most recently, of GraceLand, which won the 2005 PEN/Hemingway Prize, a Silver Medal in the California Book Awards, and was a finalist for several other prizes including the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. His other prizes include a PEN Freedom-to-Write Award, a Prince Claus Award, and a Lannan Literary Fellowship. He lives and teaches in California. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9781888451948
