What It Means When A Man Falls From The Sky: The most acclaimed short story collection of the year Paperback – by Lesley Nneka Arimah

‘These tales cut like razors, charm like poetry, and heal like love’ Tayari Jones (author of AMERICAN MARRIAGE)

A stunning collection of short stories from Caine-Prize and Commonwealth Writer’s Prize winner Lesley Nneka Arimah, WHAT IT MEANS WHEN A MAN FALLS FROM THE SKY has been described as ‘luminous’ (Roxane Gay), ‘mesmeric’ (Claire Vaye Watkins) and ‘hilarious and heartbreaking’ (Rowan Hisayo Buchanan). Shot through with magic and a powerful sense of yearning, this is a diverse and dazzling collection that showcases the work of a major new talent at the beginning of a stellar literary career.

‘When Enebeli Okwara sent his girl out in the world, he did not know what the world did to daughters’. The daughters, wives and mothers in Lesley Nneka Arimah’s remarkable debut collection find themselves in extraordinary situations: a woman whose mother’s ghost appears to have stepped out of a family snapshot, another who, exhausted by childlessness, resorts to fashioning a charmed infant out of human hair, a ‘grief worker’ with a miraculous ability to remove emotional pain – at a price. What unites them is the toughness of the world they inhabit, a world where the future is uncertain, opportunities are scant, and fortunes change quicker than the flick of a switch. Characterised by their vividness, immediacy and the author’s seemingly endless ability to conjure worlds at once familiar and unsettlingly different, this is a remarkable debut from a ‘master storyteller’ (Independent)

    Learn how to build and maintain champion level teams, then lead your team to the peak level of success regardless of the field you’re in.

    Individual all-stars can only take you so far. Ultimately, success–whether in business, family, church, athletic teams, or any other organization–is entirely dependent on teamwork. But how does one build that team?

    Leadership expert and bestselling author John C. Maxwell knows that building and maintaining a successful team is no simple task. Even people who have taken their teams to the highest level in their field have difficulty re-creating what accounted for their successes. In his practical, down-to-earth style, Maxwell shares the vital principles of team building that are necessary for success in any type of organization.

    In The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork, Dr. Maxwell shows how:

    • The Law of High Morale inspired a 50-year-old man who couldn’t even swim to train for the toughest triathlon in the world;
    • The Law of the Big Picture prompted a former US president to travel across the country by bus, sleep in a basement, and do manual labor;
    • Playing by The Law of the Scoreboard enabled one web-based company to keep growing and make money while thousands of other Internet businesses failed;
    • Ignoring The Law of the Price Tag caused one of the world’s largest retailers to close its doors after 128 years in business;
    • And much more!

    Building a successful team has plagued leaders since the beginning of time. Is the key a strong work ethic? Is it “chemistry”? The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork will empower you–whether coach or player, teacher or student, CEO or non-profit volunteer–with the “how-tos“ and attitudes for building a successful team.
