Limbo is a powerful and moving debut novel, telling the story of Trinidadian-born Pharaoh Chisholm’s cultural isolation when he and his family migrate from the multicultural hub of Los Angeles to Trondheim, a small, homogenous city hidden between fjords in the middle of Norway.

Sean Keith Henry was born in Port-of- Spain, Trinidad, and grew up in Boston, Mass. He received an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Notre Dame. He lived for four years in Norway and now resides in Southern California with his wife and two chil-dren. His stories have been published in Obsidian II, Salamander and Callaloo.

Industry Reviews

""Limbo" is an smart, honest novel about displacement and the meaning of home. It struggles in turn with the embracing of identity and the welcome comfort of escape."
-- Percival Everett, author of "Erasure," winner of the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award
