eBook: One World: A Global Anthology of Short Stories
This anthology, edited by Chris Brazier, presents a fresh and varied take on our astonishingly diverse world.
The twenty-three short stories, by both established and up-and-coming authors, are set in communities all over the globe and explore the complex relationships among the people within them.
Includes a story each from Orange Prize winning novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Pulitzer Prize winner Jhumpa Lahiri, Caine Prize 2008 winner Henrietta Rose-Innes, and emerging authors such as Chika Unigwe from Nigeria, Lucinda Nelson Dhavan from India, Petina Gappah from Zimbabwe and Elaine Chiew from Malaysia.
This is an unusual concept as it welcomes contributions from all over the globe. One World is not restricted to regions, continents, or broad ethnic groups - it is simply an international line-up of socially-enlightening stories from Puerto Rico to Botswana, USA to Australia and beyond.
