The National Book Award-winning author takes flight with this bestselling collection of speculative fiction where a woman visits fifteen otherworldly--yet familiar--societies.

Sita Dulip has missed her flight. But instead of listening to garbled announcements, she has found a method of bypassing the horrors of the airport. This method--changing planes--enables Sita to visit fifteen societies not found on Earth. She will encounter cultures where the babble of children fades over time into the silence of adults; where whole towns exist solely for holiday shopping; where personalities are ruled by ra≥ where genetic experiments produce less than desirable results...

"A fantastical travel guide, reminiscent of Gulliver's Travels , in which the narrator visits fifteen planes and describes the people, language, and customs with the eye of an anthropologist and the humor of a satirist."-- USA Today
