As much as I loved the idea of a literary peek at countries rarely represented in the United States, this collection disappointed me. Most of the selections were less than ten pages long, and few were complete short stories. As a result, most of my readings felt random and pointless because they offered little insight into the societies they were intended to represent. Add stodgy writing style and severe under-representation of female authors and the end result is not worth your time or your money.

I really liked this book which made me think about how little literature from other countries we Americans read, how hard it is get published some places, and how difficult some lives are. I especially liked the introductions for each country.
