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.'
