Interlink World Fiction

The best way to learn about people and places far away.

This series is designed to bring to North American readers the once-unheard voices of writers who have achieved wide acclaim at home, but were not recognized beyond the borders of their native lands. With special emphasis on women writers, Interlink's Emerging Voices series publishes the best of the world's contemporary literature in translation or original English.

"Interlink World Fiction is now the most important collection of Arabic literature in translation in the English-speaking world." --Robert J. Sullivan, professor at University of Massachusetts, Amherst, in Metamorphoses, a journal of translation
