Things Are Good Now

Things are great now! Djamila Ibrahim’s debut short-story collection, Things Are Good Now, is up for the Danuta Gleed Literary Award. I edited this book for House of Anansi Press.

Here’s the citation:

Situated at the intersection of the political and the personal, the moving stories in Things Are Good Now tell of immigrants and refugees, freedom fighters, and civil servants. The characters in Djamila Ibrahim’s collection are grasping for a better future amidst the chaos of displacement and the burden of memory. Fiercely emotional and richly rendered, Things are Good Now highlights our universal need to belong, our struggle to come to terms with our pasts, and the complexity and intensity of human connection. A necessary and captivating read.
