It's Here!

What a pleasant surprise to come home from AWP and find the new anthology, Words Without Borders: The World Through the Eyes of Writers in my mail box. It's a gorgeous volume, with work by under-read international writers from 20 countries, each introduced by authors like Anton Shammas, Ha Jin, Ahdaf Soueif, Aleksander Hemon, Cynthia Ozick, Francine Prose, Naguib Mahfouz, and more. My translation of Iraqi writer Jabbar Yassin Hussin's story, a riff on Avveroes, is in it with an introduction by Alberto Manguel. Get a copy today.
