Robert F. WorthDenys Johnson-Davies’s new anthology is a much-needed guide to this world. It contains a startling array of styles and subjects: Nubian folk tales, angry social satires, historical fiction, vivid battle narratives, even a lesbian seduction. Alongside some marquee authors, there are North Africans whose work has rarely, if ever, been translated into English. Many of the translations (along with an excellent introduction) are by Johnson-Davies, perhaps the most distinguished Arabic-to-English translator now living.
