Volume 89 No. 5, September 2015
In a year marked by protracted conflicts over bodies—women’s bodies, black bodies, immigrant/refugee bodies, and even the body politic—Bodies in Literature, featuring nine writers from around the globe, headlines the September 2015 issue of World Literature Today. The issue also includes new fiction by Naja Marie Aidt and Nnedi Okorafor; verse by Dunya Mikhail, Jiang Tao, and six Cuban poets; and essays by Ma Jian and Chris Astwood. As always, a wealth of book reviews, featured new books, recommended reading lists, and online exclusives round out the issue.
