What It Means When a Man Falls From the Sky

The Week (US) - - 22 Arts -

by Les­ley Nneka Arimah (River­head, $26). This de­but col­lec­tion is a real stun­ner—one of the best of 2017. Les­ley Nneka Arimah’s prose is lovely and ef­fort­less, and her 12 sto­ries leap from genre to genre while al­ways show­cas­ing her mas­ter­ful un­der­stand­ing of hu­man frailty.

by Ben­nett Sims (Two Dol­lar Ra­dio, $16). These 11 cere­bral, un­canny sto­ries marry hor­ror, pop cul­ture, metafic­tion, and cin­ema, and the re­sult is a col­lec­tion un­like any other in re­cent mem­ory. If you like David Foster Wal­lace, Godzilla, or both, you need this book.
