Cultural Concoctions

December 2, 2023

Here is a selection of work from writers around the world that reminds us, as Virginia Woolf wrote, “Literature is open to everybody. Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.” From a French Goncourt Prize-winner, to a Cambodian American’s posthumous publication, a mélange of characters from all over globe (literally) circle the planet. We also have two rather different works of fiction from Ireland, one a recent prize-winner.

Happy reading,
