Volume Three

This Is the Language That Was Given to Us

Featuring original poetry and prose by fifteen writers from twelve different countries, from established stars to new and emerging talents, This Is the Language That Was Given to Us weaves a many-threaded tapestry, exemplifying the diversity and richness of international literature.

Read Namwali Serpell on the fragility of personal bonds old and new, and what the late Toni Morrison’s seminal novel, Beloved, can teach us about love and intimacy; Sergio Aguilar Rivera’s Kafkaesque evocation of the anxieties that might plague a new mother; poems by Josey Foo, Chekwube Danladi, and others; and newcomer Anna Andrew on seeking both refuge and sustenance across southern Sudan, Uganda, and Egypt.
