Samrat upadhyay's new collection vibrates at the edges of intersecting cultures. Journalists in kathmandu are targeted by the government. A nepali man studying in america drops out of school and finds himself a part of the unrest in ferguson, missouri. A white american woman moves to nepal and changes her name. A nepali man falls in love with mysterious foreign black woman. A rich kid is caught up in his own fantasies of poverty and bank robbery. In the title story, a powerful woman, the owner of a construction company becomes a political prisoner, and in stark and unflinching prose, we see both her world and her mind radically remade. Through the course of the stories in this collection, upadhyay builds new modes of seeing our interconnected contemporary world. A collection of formal inventiveness, heartbreak and hope, it reaffirms upadhyay's position as one or our most important chroniclers of globalization and exile-- fast forward -- beggar boy -- what will happen to the sharma family -- freak street -- dreaming of ghana -- an affair before the earthquake -- mad country -- america the great equalizer.
