Foreign Soil

(2015)
A collection of stories by

 
 
"Clarke is the real deal... " - Dave Eggers, author of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius

"A tremendous new voice; a writer of immense talent and depth." - Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Sterling... a powerful view of the beauty and complexities of globalization." - Essence

From a powerful new voice in international fiction, this prize-winning collection of stories crosses the world - from Africa, London, the West Indies, and Australia - and expresses the global experience.

Maxine Beneba Clarke gives voice to the disenfranchised, the lost, and the mistreated in this stunning collection of provocative and gorgeously wrought stories that will challenge you, move you, and change the way you view this complex world we inhabit.

Within these pages, a desperate asylum seeker is pacing the hallways of Sydney's notorious Villawood detention centre; a seven-year-old Sudanese boy has found solace in a patchwork bike; an enraged black militant is on the war-path through the rebel squats of 1960s Brixton; a Mississippi housewife decides to make the ultimate sacrifice to save her son from small-town ignorance; a young woman leaves rural Jamaica in search of her destiny; and an Australian schoolgirl loses her way.

In the bestselling tradition of novelists such as Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Marlon James, this urgent, poetic, and essential work is the perfect introduction to a fresh and talented voice in international fiction.
