An American family adopts a chimpanzee from Sierra Leone, but has to ultimately deal with its humiliation of being in a zoo. In 1910, Gama, the champion wrestler from India visits London to fight challenge matches there and ultimately discovers that it is a city which is mysteriously absent of challengers and where athletes are actors and ring is the stage. A woman marries a ghost and he survives in the physical world with his intangible presence. Thus go few plot lines in Tania James’s impressive collection of short stories – Aerogrammes.

Brilliant set of short stories, each with a different setting. Poignant, especially the endings.
Would compare her to Jhumpa Lahiri since her style of writing is very similar.
Recommend it with 5 stars ( )
