Abstract (English)

"What are the politics of the imagination? Hw do these politics speak through the art of fiction? This timely collection of forty-one stories and essays by writers from around the world celebrates a myriad of voices and histories. Grappling with dilemmas of cultural identity, sexual politics, and systems of oppression, these writers speak with humor, outrage, irony, and faith." -- Back cover.
