Helen Oyeyemi

One of the most striking voices in contemporary literature, Helen Oyeyemi talks about her most recent short story collection, What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours. It is a book of baroque beauty and quicksilver imagination; characters slip from their own story and resurface in another, on a journey that takes us to lost libraries and locked gardens; to marshlands where the drowned dead live; and to a city where the clocks have stopped.
