"Taking us into the houses, streets, villages, cities - and hearts - of people around the globe, this exciting collection makes accessible a truly cross-cultural selection of important short fiction. Twenty-five contemporary stories from five cultures far different from our own bring us the distinct flavours and sights, values, and conflicts of modern Africa, China, India, Japan, and Latin America. But against the totally foreign and exotic backdrops, the powerful dramas and relationships that come to life are universal and instantly familiar. Bringing together the works of writers as diverse as Bessie Head, Lu Wenfu, Mahasweta Devi, Yuko Tsushima, and Luisa Valenzuela, this unique collection of world literature expands our cultural horizons."

This collection of contemporary multi-cultural fiction includes stories by: Bessie Head, Charles Mungoshi, Ngugi wa Thiong'o, Wang Anyi, Ding Ling, Wang Meng, Chen Rong, Lu Wenfu, Anita Desai, Mahasweta Devi, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, R. K. Narayan, Khushwant Singh, Kobo Abe, Sawako Ariyoshi, Yasunari Kawabata, Yukio Mishima, Yuko Tsushima, Carlos Fuentes, Luisa Valenzuela, Nadine Gordimer, and Isabel Allende.
