The Aliens of Earth

The Aliens of Earth

The Aliens of EarthPowerful human emotions and the relationship between the inner self and outer world are the central concerns in a deeply moving story collection by the author of Beggars in Spain . Whether the tale concerns slips through time (“The Price of Oranges,” “The Battle of Long Island,” “Wild for to Hold”), colonies for the diseased (“Inertia”) or a man receiving calls from a nonexistent house (“Phone Repairs”), the characters are real, their suffering is valid and realistic despite the fantasy context, and the author’s insights ring true. The writing is smooth and fluid; the stark, black-and-white illustrations are simplistic but well chosen for mood and impact, adding an extra kick to an already affecting array of works. – Publishers Weekly
