Publisher Comments:

In conjunction with the International Parliament of Writers’s tenth anniversary, this third issue of Autodafe will examine contemporary threats to creative expression, current forms of censorship and propaganda, and new means of intellectual, literary and linguistic resistance. Autodafe Volume 3 is entitled L.T.I. (2003): A Manual for Intellectual Survival, in tribute to the work of Viktor Klemperer. From 1933 to 1945 the Jewish professor kept a secret linguistic diary, Lingua Tertium Imperri, The Language of the Third Reich, detailing the characteristic literary forms and idiomatic expressions of the Nazis.

This volume will include contributions by: Russell Banks, Salim Barakat, François Barré, Hélène Cixous, Vincenzo Consolo, Mahmoud Darwish, Ariel Dorfman, Carlos Fuentes, Edward Herman, Alvaro Mutis, Christian Salmon, Wole Soyinka, Xiao Xiao, and Spôjmaï Zariâb, among many others.

Synopsis:

"For a totalitarian regime," wrote Arendt, "the ideal citizen isn't a chest-thumping Nazi, but rather the man for whom the distinction between fact and fiction (meaning the reality of the experience) and the distinction between true and false (meaning the standard way of thinking) doesn't exist anymore."

Synopsis:

Volume three of urgent political writing from a worldwide association of literary activists.

Synopsis:

AUTODAFE is a collection of reports, interviews, correspondence, narratives, and stories from around the world. The review aims to be a place for debate and experimentation, a place where writers, silenced by censorship join voices with world-renowned writers. The contributors are all members of the International Parliament of Writers; the pieces are original to Autodafe. The journal's common themes are the reflection of social and political realities of the world, censorship, the interdict of language, and the effects of globablization among others.

Synopsis:

Autodafe's international community of writers expands in Volume 3 with new works by Patrick Tierney of the United States, Spojmai Zariab of Afghanistan, Breyten Breytenbach of South Africa, and Padel Gyal of Tibet.

About the Author

The International Parliament of Writers (IPW) was created after an appeal launched in July 1993 by 300 writers from all over the world, in reaction to the increase of writers assassinations in Algeria. The signatories of this appeal affirmed the need for a new international structure capable of organizing a concrete solidarity with persecuted writers, in the form of a Cities of Asylum Network. The publication of their annual review, AUTODAFE, was a collaboration between various publishing houses around the world: Seven Stories Press in the US, Anagrama in Spain, Agra in Athens, Denoel in France, and Feltrinelli in Italy.
