“Roseanne has been married to Jack thirty-six years, and is on to all of his tricks.” A family gathering one summer evening shows the cracks in the long, relatively happy union between Jack and Roseanne. “Earthman Pointing” explores how the families you make and those you are born into shape the contours of your life in unimaginable ways.
The short story collection Poached Egg On Toast showcases Itani’s ability to shine a clear light on what it feels like to be an outsider, displaced and disconnected from the world at hand, and how a single, small moment can cause a seismic shift in our emotional landscape. Wickedly funny and unbearably sad, Itani’s stories leave us with a renewed sense of humanity.
