For its July/August 2023 issue, World Literature Today’s editors took to the road to explore “The Bookstores of Middle America” and chose favorite destinations in nine states. Other highlights include Veronica Esposito’s new “Untranslatable” column, Andrew Lam’s moving homage to his mother, Shahd Alshammari’s favorite books on disability and illness, and a visit to literary Los Angeles with Ming Di and Dana Gioia. The book review section rounds up the best new books from around the world, while additional interviews, poetry, essays—and a recipe for peach galette—make the July issue your latest passport to great reading, whether in “flyover country” or some far-flung literary destination.
