Kesha Ajọsẹ Fisher's No God like the Mother follows characters in transition, through tribulation and hope. Set around the world — the bustling streets of Lagos, the arid gardens beside the Red Sea, an apartment in Paris, the rain-washed suburbs of the Pacific Northwest — this collection of nine stories is a masterful exploration of life's uncertainty that will draw readers in and keep them riveted.
About the Author
Kesha Ajọsẹ Fisher, whose essays and stories have been published in several online and print collections, writes from singular experience. Born in Chicago, Fisher was raised in Nigeria, Texas, and California. She now makes her home in Portland, Oregon, where she lives with her four children, her husband, and her poodle/bichon mix, Oscar. She has worked as a counselor with disadvantaged youth, and also as an advocate for African immigrants and refugees. Vividly informed by the struggle, triumph, love, and pain of her own life and the lives of her clients, Fisher's writing documents the bitter suffering of characters in seemingly inescapable predicaments.
