Banthology: Stories from Unwanted Nations by Sarah Cleave
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This short anthology contains one contemporary story from each country on the Trump administration banned list. These stories are neither comprehensive nor fully representative, and don't set out to be, they are merely 7 captures of 7 small stories that happen to come from an author from each country and possibly about that situation. One takes place entirely in an airport (probably my favorite) where the rules keep changing and the woman literally has no way of winning. Very 21st century, very of the now, just normal people from countries deserving of respect. Thanks to Deep Vellum for pulling this together and getting it all translated into English.
I received a review copy of this through Edelweiss; it came out 24 April 2018.
