New Book: Leaving by Plane Swimming Back Underwater by Lawrence Scott

A daring new collection of short stories from the prize-winning Caribbean writer Lawrence Scott, author of Light Falling on Bamboo.

"Marvelous voices that grow into a very special world that Lawrence Scott has made his own. These are stories full of charm and surprise." Romesh Gunesekera.

In these stories, Lawrence Scott explores a world of yearnings and memory, of departure and return, underpinned by the disturbing tensions created by religion, race, sexuality and crime. Sensuous and evocative, Scott's prose has a lightness of touch and tone that exhilarates and illuminates. In the midst of everyday lives, he finds the extraordinary in the ordinary.
