Integrating a deep anguish over the state of the world with a sociopolitical satire of America after 9/11, a collection of short fiction includes "Mitosis," the life history of a young Dinka woman whose way of life has been destroyed by the civil war in Sudan, and the title story, about a Boulder, Colorado, matriarch who extends a dinner invitation to Osama Bin Ladin. Winner of the 2008 Richard Sullivan Prize in Short Fiction. Original.
