For this third installment in the annual anthology, editor Aleksandar Hemon has organized its thirty-four stories not by country, but by theme (love, desire, family, thought, art, home, work, evil). In his introduction, Hemon informs readers that the intention is to place the stories “in the situation of dialogue and to show what we have always known: the infinite variation of human experience, which can never be spent or diminished to a tweet, is the true and only domain of literature. What you can find in this book is not only great, relevant fiction, but also – and perhaps, most importantly – a sense of kinship in the belief that human lives, thoughts, and feelings always matter.” Index by Author, Index by Country, Author Biographies, Translator Biographies. 459p.
