Foreign romance. The end of the world. A murderous plant. An impossible heist, a burning building. Pygmalion, with a twist. In her debut collection, Annika Inampudi re-examines the central themes of her own life and translates them eloquently to the page. Including her award-winning work brought back to life and never before seen tales, these ten short stories are a stunning and intricate portrait of brown womanhood and more, re-imagined.
