South of South

An anthology of stories edited by

A collection of short fiction by international authors, this anthology asks artist emigres to describe the forces that pushed them to places far away from home - and how they propel their fictional characters on similar journeys. The resulting stories reveal a rich tangle of motives for departure, including romantic dreams, big ambitions, family ties, and flight from poverty and persecution. The contributors include Niki Aguirre, Naomi Alderman, Tahmina Anam, Monica Arac de Nyeko, Brian Chikwava, Junot Diaz, Romesh Gunesekera, Nam Le, and Zoe Wicomb, all of whom explore the complexities of 21st-century migration in locales from Abidjan, Accra, and Cape Coast to Dijon, London, and Los Angeles.
