Bossy Books Ep. 6: “What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours” by Helen Oyeyemi

Episode 6

This month’s Bossy Book is Helen Oyeyemi’s brand new selection of short stories, “What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours.” Like the fairy tales that inspire much of her writing, Oyeyemi’s stories are a little bit history, a little bit reality, a little bit fantasy, a little bit morality, and a little bit nonsense. She unravels her wild imagination on the page and there’s no use in trying to make sense of it all – these are worlds in which readers must allow themselves to become lost.
