Responding to both George W Bush's 'axis of evil' rhetoric and the decline in foreign literature available in translation in the United States, this anthology of writing from Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Syria, Libya, Sudan and Cuba has been compiled 'to widen... our circles of reference'. Among the characters in these stories and poems are a clever student facing his teacher's wrath, a condemned soldier longing for domestic life and a musician who dedicates his life to building the Great Leader's monuments. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
