The Loft presents Lesley Nneka Arimah, author of the highly anticipated short story collection What It Means When a Man Falls from the Sky. Book sales provided by Milkweed Books.


Lesley Arimah describes her debut collection as “a book that interrogates the Nigerian experience, exploring the past, present and future.” What It Means When a Man Falls from the Sky joins a proud Riverhead Books publishing tradition of bringing attention to voices from around the world. Whimsically beautiful and delightfully strange, Arimah’s inventive and sharply observed stories have amassed a devoted following of readers. It is a great pleasure to introduce this singular and exuberant voice.
