about this item

An alluring new collection from the author of the New York Times Notable Book,Midnight RobberNalo Hopkinson (Brown Girl in the Ring, The Salt Roads, Sister Mine) is an internationally-beloved storyteller. Hailed by theLos Angeles Times as having "an imagination that most of us would kill for," her Afro-Caribbean, Canadian, and American influences shine in truly unique stories that are filled with striking imagery, unlikely beauty, and delightful strangeness.In this long-awaited collection, Hopkinson continues to expand the boundaries of culture and imagination. Whether she is retellingThe Tempest as a new Caribbean myth, filling a shopping mall with unfulfilled ghosts, or herding chickens that occasionally breathe fire, Hopkinson continues to create bold fiction that transcends boundaries and borders.
Nalo Hopkinson (Brown Girl in the Ring, Skin Folk) has been widely hailed as a highly significant voice in Caribbean and American fiction. She has been dubbed one of our most important writers,? (Junot Diaz), with an imagination that most of us would kill for? (Los Angeles Times), and her work has been called stunning,? (New York Times) rich in voice, humor, and dazzling imagery? (Kirkus), and simply triumphant? (Dorothy Allison).

Falling in Love with Hominids presents over a dozen years of Hopkinson?s new, uncollected fiction, much of which has been unavailable in print. Her singular, vivid tales, which mix the modern with Afro-Carribean folklore, are occupied by creatures unpredictable and strange: chickens that breathe fire, adults who eat children, and spirits that haunt shopping malls.
