Born in London and raised in Nigeria and the United States, Lesley Nneka Arimah brings diverse perspectives to these 12 insightful short stories, which won her the Kirkus Prize. In the National Magazine Award finalist for The New Yorker, "Who Will Greet You at Home," a woman desperate for a child weaves one out of hair, with unsettling results. In "Wild," a disastrous night out shifts a teenager and her Nigerian cousin onto uneasy common ground; "Light" chronicles how a father struggles to protect and empower the daughter; and in the title story, in a world ravaged by flood and riven by class, experts have discovered how to "fix the equation of a person"—with unforeseen repercussions.
