Summary The New World is, in the words of its author, "a carefully structured gathering of ten tales that dramatize and explore the process and progress of self-transcendence, tales that describe and embrace the spiritual limits and possibilities of life in the New World". Both religious and funny, the stories mark a giant step forward in Banks's rapid development into one of the nation's most exciting young writers.
