Already an award-winning writer, Packer now shares her long awaited debut collection of stories which has been greeted with acclaim.
From the Publisher:
In a debut collection by an award-winning short story writer, a scout troop of African-American girls is confronted by a group of disabled white girls, a young man considers his allegiance to his father during the Million Man March in Washington, and an international group of work-seeking drifters finds themselves starving in Japan.
Annotation:
Stories by an award-winning young American writer.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"Highly personal yet socio-politically acute: a debut collection that cuts to the bone of human experience and packs a lasting wallop." 12/01/2002

New York Times Book Review
"Young writers, naturally enough, write about young characters. DRINKING COFFEE ELSEWHERE is not really limited by this. Instead, there is a sense of a talented writer testing and pushing at those limits, ringing as many changes as possible within her fictional world. It is a world already populated by clamoring, sorrowing, eminently knowable people, and with the promise of more to come." - Jean Thompson 03/16/2003

London Review of Books
"...DRINKING COFFEE ELSEWHERE is an intelligent and memorable meditation on what it means to be a victim. Although each of the stories shows the importance of race, they all challenge the assumptions that to be black must mean feeling like a loser, and that feeling like a loser is always caused by being black....The central characters themselves are fully alive, and each story shows that race is only one element in their sense of themselves as people apart. Packer can be very funny...[A]t her best, Packer combines her political vision with an impressive lightness of touch." - Emily Wilson 04/01/2004
