Airborne: A Sentimental Journey by William F. Buckley

Uwem Akpans first published short story, An Ex-mas Feast, appeared inThe New Yorkers Debut Fiction issue in 2005. The storys portrait of a family living together in a makeshift shanty in urban Kenya , and their attempts to find gifts of any kind for the impending Christmas holiday, gives a matter-of-fact reality to the most extreme circumstances--and signaled the arrival of a breathtakingly talented writer. My Parents Bedroom is a Rwandan girls account of her familys struggles to maintain a facade of normalcy amid unspeakable acts. In Fatshy;tening for Gabon , a brother and sister cope with their uncles attempt to sell them into slavery. Luxurious Hearses creates a microcosm of Africa within a busload of refugees and introduces us to a Muslim boy who summons his faith to bear a treacherous ride through Nigeria . What Language Is That? reveals the emotional toll of the Christian-Muslim conflict in Ethiopia through the eyes of childhood friends. Every story is a testament to the wisdom and resilience of children, even in the face of the most agonizing situations our planet can offer.
