My Top Three Reasons to Read This WLT
I recommend reading World Literature Today cover-to-cover every issue, but if you need some extra incentive for the January-February 2015, here you go:
1. The article by J. Madison Davis: “The Idiotically Criminal Universe of the Brothers Cohen.”
2. The special section of flash nonfiction featuring works by Brian Doyle, Josey Foo, Lia Purpura, Vikram Kapur, and Dmitry Samarov.
3. The “Suite of Contempory Ethiopean Poetry” with Misrak Terefe, Abebaw Melaku, Mihret Kebede, Eric Ellingsen, and David Shook.
And my two runner-ups: “Storytelling, Fake Worlds, and the Internet” by Elif Shafak and “Ping-Pong: or, Writing Together” by Sergio Pitol. And everything else in between. But I did say I would pick three to number.
