X-24: Unclassified

(2007)
An anthology of stories edited by

 
 
An American girl dreams of soccer and Mardi Gras while her Nigerian parents wait for their green cards; an organic seed distributor entraps an errant lover with a replica pre-Columbian Aztec artefact bought in Chicago; an instrument-gardener harvests the sound of a dead woman; a matchmaker faces failure unless she s prepared to offer herself; an English girl finds herself adrift in a Welsh summer camp; a blind beggar scrambles for change at a South American crossroads, and a Moroccan mother wonders if her son is really a saint. The stories in x-24 transcend location, nationality, reality and time; disconcerting at times for their sheer irreverence, each tale has that quality of rare insight that makes for compelling reading.
