Nigerian-American short fiction favorite Lesley Nneka Arimah made waves in April with the release of her long-awaited collection What It Means When a Man Falls from the Sky. For months prior, publications as varied as Time, Elle, The Chicago Tribune, The Boston Globe, and even Buzzfeed had lauded it as one of 2017’s most anticipated releases – and with good reason. Arimah’s debut features a dozen stories, several of which have already earned her an international following. These include the O. Henry Prize-winning, National Magazine Award-nominated "Glory," about a doll woven from hair which comes to life, and "Light," winner of the prestigious Commonwealth Short Story Prize. Considered in its entirety, NPR calls What It Means When a Man Falls from the Sky "electrifying and defiantly original… Arimah crafts stories that reward rereading, not because they're unclear or confusing, but because it's so tempting to revisit each exquisite sentence, each uniquely beautiful description."
