Aerogrammes : and other stories by Tania James( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A collection of short stories set in locales as varied as London, Sierra Leone, and the American Midwest that captures the yearning and dislocation of young men and women around the world. In "Light & Luminous," a gifted instructor of Indian dance falls victim to the vanity and insecurities that have followed her into middle age. In "Tonto and the Undertaker," a widower copes with his loss by cruising Kentucky highways and burying roadkill. In "The Scriptological Review" a damaged young man obsessively studies his father's handwriting in hopes of making sense of his suicide. And in "What to Do with Henry," a white woman from Ohio takes in the illegitimate child her husband left behind in Sierra Leone, as well as an orphaned chimpanzee who comes to anchor this strange new family. Tania James once again introduces us to a host of delicate, complicated, and beautifully realized characters who find themselves separated from their friends and families and communities by race and pride and grief"--

Certainly, London at the turn of the twentieth century is home to the world championship of wrestling, but the British wrestlers know nothing of the giant Kikkar Singh, for example, who once uprooted an acacia tree bare-handed, just because it was disrupting his view. They know nothing of pehlwans: they know nothing of the brothers Gama and Imam. The Lion and Panther have come from Lahore to become champions--but first they must find an opponent willing to be faced
