With settings from Nairobi, to the India/Pakistan border, to Paris, to Guatemala, to various other parts of the world each story presents a glimpse into other cultures and what happens when cultures come together. Some of my favorite stories included one about American oil families living in Saudi Arabia, one about Cuban exiles in Miami (complete with many gr [...]


    3. This is a collection of short stories all of which depict interactions between people of different cultures.

Some of my favorites were the story of lunatics being exchanged over the India-Pakistan border, the story of a Cambodian translator working with an Australian refugee agency, and the story of a foreign aid worker in Ivory Coast. Some of the stories weren't great, but [...]


    4. Readers in Seattle: If I ever return this book to the library (which is looking doubtful- I keep bringing it to work for that purpose then deciding, no, I just *have* to reread one story or another one more time), you must borrow it.



    5. This is a book of 30 stories about various countries, their people and their cultures. The book was educational, the writing and stories below average to average. I gave it 3 stars.
