Synopsis:

The premiere anthology of international literature returns for its 20th anniversary with a jam-packed volume headlined by a collection of writing dedicated to the Arab Spring. Coedited by Susan Bernofsky, one of Americas leading translators, and Christopher Merrill, a celebrated poet and translator, this new volume of Two Lines showcases both prominent international writers and the voices of tomorrow. Each volume publishes writing from over 20 different languages, letting readers make connections between the wealth of amazing writing being produced around the world. This 20th volume includes a special section collecting vital new writing from the Middle East that comments on the momentous events during the Arab Spring of 2010. These suspenseful, inspiring, tragic, and at times even humorous pieces give the American reader an opportunity to better understand the region in which these astonishing events took place, offering essential cultural context and ensuring that the import of the Arab Spring is truly understood.
