Telling Tales

(2004)
An anthology of stories edited by

 
 
Rarely have so many writers of such variety and distinction appeared on a contents list in the same anthology. The list includes Gabriel García Márquez, Margaret Atwood, John Updike, Susan Sontag, Hanif Kureishi and José Saramago, as well as Nadine Gordimer, who has edited and introduces the collection. Their stories capture the range of emotions and situations of our human universe: tragedy, comedy, fantasy, satire, dramas of sexual love and of war, in different continents and cultures.

Along with making music, the art of storytelling is the oldest form of enchantment as entertainment. The twenty-one stories in this anthology are written in different 'voices' - vividly individual styles - and all have come together to bring the joy of reading to whoever takes up this remarkable collection.

All twenty-one writers have given their stories without any fee or royalty. The publishers of each edition in each country where the anthology is published have produced the book without receiving any profit or royalty.

Musicians have given their talents for the benefit of the forty million men, women and children infected with HIV and AIDS worldwide. These writers have decided that they too wanted to contribute in some way to the fight against the pandemic disease from which no country, no individual, is safely isolated.
