Helen Oyeyemi is the author of the story collection What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours, winner of the PEN Open Book Award, along with seven novels, including Gingerbread and Boy, Snow, Bird. In Peaces, when Otto and Xavier Shin declare their love, an aunt gifts them a trip on a sleeper train to mark their new commitment – and to get them out of her house. Setting off with their pet mongoose, Otto and Xavier soon deduce that “The Lucky Day” is no ordinary locomotive. As clues and questions pile up, the trip upends everything they thought they knew.
