Synopses & Reviews
Fiction. 1001 GREAT STORIES is the second in a series of short-fiction stories. Volume 2 of 1001 GREAT STORIES continues what will be the dominant pattern of the series, a wide ranging selection of international figures covering the centuries. Among the noted figures of this volume are the early and mid-20th century American author, Djuna Barnes; the contemporary and recently deceased Algerian-French novelist and poet, Mohammed Dib; the Greek storyteller, poet and novelist Andreas Embiricos; contemporary Czech dramatist and writer Daniela Fischerova; early 20th century Japanese experimentalist Hagiwara Sakutaro; German modernist novelist and storyteller Georg Heym; Anglo-American novelist Aldous Huxley; Slovenian author Lojze Kovacic; and Italian-American storyteller Niccolo Tucci. The editor envisions this short-fiction series as an entertaining and educational project that will help English-language readers discover the joys of international writing and to recognize their own writers within that international context.
The second volume of Green Integer’s ongoing series of international fiction includes Georg Heym, Wyndham Lewis, Katherine Mansfield, Hagiwara Sakutaro, Gertrude Stein, Osman Lins, Oliverio Girondo, Marie Redonnet, Guy Davenport and Mohammed Dib. Once again, these volumes will appeal to any reader, and teachers will find them more than attractive for classroom use.
