  • I m using Hugo recommendations to try out new authors A beautifully atmospheric story I really enjoyed the premise I m familiar with Otik, a Czech horror film in which parents adopt a stick baby that starts eating the neighbours This story, in contrast, shows every child as conceived in a similar way, with everyday materials used to create babies that take on characteristics of the fabric used to make them Very thought provoking.


  • What the heck did I just read This was just about the strangest story I ve ever ingested, but it was a powerful, beautiful strange It was only 15 pages long, but the author said all she needed to say in those 15 pages Gorgeous and deep Consider my thoughts provoked.


  • This is so fresh and inventive and scary It resonates like a folk tale and reminds me of that feeling when you wake up from a nightmare wondering where the heck did that come from I m definitely checking out of her work.


  • Wouldn t say too much about this except that it is super creepy and highly imaginative One of the best short I ve read in a whileAnd brilliant knowing after I opened the author s page and found out that this is her only or, first, I hope work.


  • What an amazing story This is probably one of the best short stories I have read, and also one of the creepiest It s rather short so it won t take you long to read.This author is extremely talented I hope she continues writing Heck, I could imagine seeing a plot like this made into a novel This is definitely a beautiful, thought provoking, eerie story It s hard to find good stories like this nowadays.Will definitely be reading her upcoming novel.




  • Reminded me of Coraline in its subtle yet genuine style of matronly horror Really well written Highly stylized but it lends well to the theme.


  • The short story seems to be Lesley Nneka Arimah s chosen form of prose, as I ve read the titular short story What It Means When A Man Falls From The Sky This story was novel in a way that allowed me to remain curious, despite the creation of the doll child being quite terrifying I appreciate Arimah s ventures into Afrofuturism, I m looking forward to reading her book soon.


  • I posted about this at on the topic show on the Great African Reads board.The story is available to read and listen to online at caineprize 2017 shortlist




  • Caine Prize 2017 shortlist nomineeA strange and mystical story about women making their own children out of whatever material they have, have their mothers bless them, carry them around for a year and they turn into real flesh and blood childrenI feel there are a few allegories in there, but I m not quite grasping all of them It is definitely an interesting take on themes like childlessness, poverty, the hopes, dreams and fears attached to children, and then there is the macabre bit view spoiler [...]


  • Full of imagination and a hopeless, dark sense of fatality, Who Will Greet You at Home resonates with every act, every song and every child, repeating a story that relives itself with each generation and, specially, all womankind It is as thrilling as it is voyeuristic, and I am definitely in love.


  • Right Apparently I don t do well with horror This is a really interesting story and deserves at least 3 stars for the writing because it is really creepy and I am definitely going to have nightmares tonight So the stars here are an evaluation of the writing than my response to the story Don t do it if you creep out easy.


  • A masterful short story Clever Unique Fabulistic and fabulous I have taught this one in several classes now and can t wait to read a great deal by Arimah A truly talented writer at work in the present times.


  • Absolutely brilliant I just want Lesley Arimah to write all the books She s got such a crisp, beautiful voice and her writing is so NEW and deeply interesting.


  • Absolutely loved this story an eerie feel, like Coraline meets the the deep south A quick read on your lunch break or commute to work.



  • The incredible audacity of the narrative, the originality of the voice, the mythic urgency of the story it all left me flushed with admiration I cannot wait to read by this stunning writer.
