Opening the Lampshade is a book of short stories surrounding the growth of a community, of a family, of a girl. Now grown and matured, that same girl reflects on the world and culture imprinted on her memories, wondering when innocence first stepped out of her universe or if it had ever been a big player in their street games at all.
