Lesley Nneka Arimah is a graduate of Mankato State University’s MFA program in Creative Writing and a resident of Minneapolis. She was born in the UK and raised partly in Nigeria. Her first collection of short stories, What It Means When a Man Falls from the Sky, was named one of the most anticipated of 2017 by Time, Elle, and The Chicago Tribune. It’s been hailed by NPR as “a truly wonderful debut” of “stories that reward rereading.” It earned a starred review from Kirkus Review as a collection that “heralds a new voice with certain staying power.”
