Description
From the award-winning author of Boy, Snow, Bird and Mr. Fox comes an enchanting collection of intertwined stories.Playful, ambitious, and exquisitely imagined, What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours is cleverly built around the idea of keys, literal and metaphorical. The key to a house, the key to a heart, the key to a secret Oyeyemi's keys not only unlock elements of her characters lives, they promise further labyrinths on the other side. In Books and Roses one special key opens a library, a garden, and clues to at least two lovers fates. In Is Your Blood as Red as This? an unlikely key opens the heart of a student at a puppeteering school. Sorry Doesn t Sweeten Her Tea involves a house of locks, where doors can be closed only with a key with surprising, unobservable developments. And in If a Book Is Locked There's Probably a Good Reason for That Don't You Think, a key keeps a mystical diary locked (for good reason). Oyeyemi's creative vision and storytelling are effervescent, wise, and insightful, and her tales span multiple times and landscapes as they tease boundaries between coexisting realities. Is a key a gate, a gift, or an invitation?What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours captivates as it explores the many possible answers.
