1 Akpan, Uwem Say You're One Of Them
New York Little, Brown & Company 2008 First Edition, First Printing Hard Cover 
Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Brown boards. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. Brown endpapers. 358pps. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Yet to be read. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is also as new; the original price is intact.

"Uwem Akpan's first published short story, 'An Ex-mas Feast,' appeared in The New Yorker's Debut Fiction issue in 2005. The story's 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 girl's account of her family's struggles to maintain a facade of normalcy amid unspeakable acts. In 'Fattening for Gabon,' a brother and sister cope with their uncle's 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."
