The Writer’s World features writers from around the globe discussing what it means to write, and to be a writer, in many different parts of the world. Each book offers a window into a particular culture with diverse traditions, landscapes, and political climates, reminding us that in an increasingly fractured world, literature transcends national boundaries and helps us understand our  shared human experience.
