Summary
Drinking coffee elsewhere takes us into the lives of characters on the periphery, unsure of where they belong, from a Girl Scout camp, where a troupe of black girls are confronted with a group of white girls, whose defining feature turns out to be not their race but their disabilities; to the Million Man March on Washington, where a young man must decide where his allegiance to his father lies; and to Japan, where an international group of drifters find themselves starving, unable to find work
Summary
"Z.Z. Packer's first collection of short stories is rich with unexpected turns, indelible images, and penetrating insight that belies someone so young. Her stories plunge us into the worlds of people living on the edge and to the flashpoints that make or break them, that shape their worldviews forever"--Publisher's web site
