In the collection of short stories Kansas City, all stories take place in, around, and through Kansas City, Missouri, exploring the dynamics of poverty, racism, and American imperialism through the lens of magical realism. In the first story, the reader is introduced to Kansas City through Prospero's Bookstore, in which the maxim, "the best use of magic is for the subversion of illegitimate authority" is established. From here, and throughout each story, the interaction of magic and illegitimate authority takes place.
