"The stories in A New Race of Men from Heaven move elegantly between the ache of loneliness and the grace of connection, however fleeting." --Danielle Evans, author of The Office of Historical Corrections
A New Race of Men from Heaven is a collection of stories about characters who wander but are never truly lost. A lonely man on a business trip finds himself in the middle of a search party for a missing boy; a grieving widow leaves India to join family in the United States; a writer finds renewed success when an unknown imposter begins publishing under his identity. In these quiet yet deeply knowing stories of migration, power, and longing, A New Race of Men from Heaven offers us, above all else, stories of enduring love and hope.
