Featuring the work of more than 28 writers from upwards of 20 countries, "Words Without Borders: The World through the Eyes of Writers "transports us to the frontiers of the new literature for the twenty-first century. In these pages, some of the most accomplished writers in world literature-among them Edwidge Danticat, Ha Jin, Cynthia Ozick, Javier Marias, and Nobel laureates Wole Soyinka, Gunter Grass, Czeslaw Milosz, Wislawa Szymborska, and Naguib Mahfouz-have stepped forward to introduce us to dazzling literary talents virtually unknown to readers of English. Most of their work-short stories, poems, essays, and excerpts from novels-appears here in English for the first time. The Chilean writer Ariel Dorfman introduces us to a story of extraordinary poise and spiritual intelligence by the Argentinian writer Juan Forn. The Romanian writer Norman Manea shares with us the sexy, sinister, and thrillingly avant garde fiction of his homeland's leading female novelist. The Indian writer Amit Chaudhuri spotlights the Bengali writer Parashuram, whose hilarious comedy of manners imagines what might have happened if Britain had been colonized by Bengal. And Roberto Calasso writes admiringly of his fellow Italian Giorgio Manganelli, whose piece celebrates the Indian city of Madurai. Every piece here-be it from the Americas, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, South Asia, East Asia, Southeast Asia, or the Caribbean-is a discovery, a colorful thread in a global weave of literary exchange. Edited by Samantha Schnee, Alane SaliernoMason, and Dedi Felman
