    A collection of short stories that speaks with the clarity and intensity of the human experience. It features stories from Jhumpa Lahiri and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and 21 other authors. A teenage Nigerian girl struggles to shed her cultural roots in the US... An Inuit girl is rowed by her parents to the shore, unaware of the fate that awaits her... A Filipina maid in Hong Kong gets entangled with her employer... The lover of an African freedom fighter has to choose between fidelity and survival NB. Jhumpa Lahiri on shortlist for 2013 Booker Prize
    'One World cleary displays the talents of the greatest authors of this century. I enjoyed every single story in this book and was able to expand my list of international authors that I need to add to my library. I promise, if you love short stories you will surely enjoy this book to the max.'
    Amazon 5-Star Customer Review

    'The best part about One World, is that it introduces the reader to so many authors from different parts of the world. Of course, as a reader you will prefer some stories or authors over others, but the large variety of storylines makes this book a fun book to read. Before buying this book, I was already familiar with Chimamanda Adichie's work. In this book I really liked Chikwa Unigwe's and Sequoia Nagamatsu's stories, and because of their participation to One World I decided to buy some of their books. That's what makes this book so unique, it introduces you to new authors and broaders your literary horizons. To me, this is THE best compilation of short stories I've come across and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading.'
