About the Author
Osama Alomar was born in Damascus, Syria in 1968 and now lives in Chicago. A poet, short-story writer, and musician, Alomar is the author of three collections of short stories and a volume of poetry. He is a regular contributor to various newspapers and journals within the Arab world.
Lydia Davis is the author of Essays One, a collection of essays on writing, reading, art, memory, and the Bible. She is also the author of The End of the Story: A Novel and many story collections, including Varieties of Disturbance, a finalist for the 2007 National Book Award for Fiction; Can't and Won't (2014); and The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis, described by James Wood in The New Yorker as "a grand cumulative achievement." Davis is also the acclaimed translator of Swann's Way and Madame Bovary, both awarded the French-American Foundation Translation Prize, and of many other works of literature. She has been named both a Chevalier and an Officier of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French government, and in 2020 she received the PEN/Malamud Award for Excellence in the Short Story.

C. J. Collins is a lover of love. Collins celebrates love in all forms and believes it transcends gender, race, ethnicity and boundaries. Personally, Collins is an introvert until the vibe matches with a penchant for humor and sarcasm. Collins enjoys every little things life has to offer and believes life offers second chances to everyone who wish to take it.

Reviews
[His stories] convey a raw combination of beauty and resignation, as if the two were created to reside under the same roof, hope and hurt at one [...] Alomar is a man of small but universally affecting insights.
Marvellous compressions.--John Madera
In Alomar''s stories [...] fantasy never devolves into mere whimsy. His magical imaginative creations are, every one, inspired by his deeply felt philosophical, moral, and political convictions, giving these tales a heartfelt urgency--Lydia Davis
The stories'' distinctive flavour comes from Alomar''s masterful shifts of character perspective within extremely tight parameters [...] The book is full of these moments which trip you up, swing bluntly from one psyche to another, rapidly decelerate time and play with scale, all of it exposing the delicate balance of our presumptions and allegiances; the small dictatorships that we foster second by second.--Emma Jacobs
