Trying to escape her embarrassing immigrant mother, Vimbai moves into a dilapidated house in the dunes... and discovers that one of her new roommates has a pocket universe instead of hair, there''s a psychic energy baby living in the telephone wires, and her dead Zimbabwean grandmother is doing dishes in the kitchen. When the house gets lost at sea and creatures of African urban legends all but take it over, Vimbai turns to horseshoe crabs in the ocean to ask for their help in getting home to New Jersey.
Ekaterina Sedia's unusually creative streak is in full force in this charming fantasy novel about a college student who, looking to find her own way and distance herself from her dysfunctional family, moves into a house populated by roommates each distinctly connected to the supernatural world. Sedia blends the "real" and the "fantastic" with such pleasant ease that readers will not flinch for a second.


"Lyrical writing and rich imagination compensate for loose plotting in this quirky, joyous fantasy." 06/14/2010
