An Inuit girl is rowed by her parents to the shore, unaware of the fate that awaits her... A Filipina maid in Hong Kong gets entangled with her employer... The lover of an African freedom fighter has to choose between fidelity and survival…

One World is a collection that speaks with the clarity and intensity of the human experience. The swift transition from story to story, from continent to continent, from child’s perspective to adult’s; together, these evoke the complex but balanced texture of the world we live in. The diversity of subject, style and perspective results in vivid and poignant stories that will haunt the reader.
