Publisher's Comments
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 rage; 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
