This copy of "How To Escape from a Leper Colony" has been SIGNED by Tiphanie Yanique on the title page! Set mostly in the U.S. Virgin Islands, the stories in this nuanced debut are lyrical, lush, and haunting. The inhabitants of an island walk into the sea. A man passes a jail cell's window, shouldering a wooden cross. And in the international shop of coffins, a story repeats itself, pointing toward an inevitable tragedy. Part oral history, part postcolonial narrative, "How to Escape from a Leper Colony" is ultimately a loving portrait of a wholly unique place. View more info
