by Helen Oyeyemi - £7.99 Pan Macmillan (Picador) (2017)
paperback ISBN 13: 9781447299394 | ISBN 10: 1447299396
The stories collected in What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours are linked by more than the exquisitely winding prose of their creator: Helen Oyeyemi's ensemble cast of characters slip from the pages of their own stories only to surface in another.
The reader is invited into a world of lost libraries and locked gardens, of marshlands where the drowned dead live and a city where all the clocks have stopped; students hone their skills at puppet school, the Homely Wench Society commits a guerrilla book-swap, and lovers exchange books and roses on St Jordi's Day.
It is a collection of towering imagination, marked by baroque beauty and a deep sensuousness.
