Happiness, Like Water : Stories, Paperback / softback Book

Happiness, Like Water : Stories Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

In this debut collection, Chinelo Okparanta introduces us to families burdened equally by the past and the future.

Here, we meet a childless couple with very different desires; a college professor comforting a troubled student; a mother seeking refuge from an abusive husband; an embittered spinster recalling the loss of a dear childhood friend; and a young woman waiting to join her lover abroad. High expectations - whether of success in Nigeria, or the dream of opportunity and accomplishment in America - consume them.

In language that is both raw and elegant, Happiness, Like Water heralds the arrival of a fearless and sensitive literary voice.
