TRANSLATED EXTRACT

from The Carriers by Jessica Schiefauer

Twice August Prize-winning author Jessica Schiefauer's new novel opens a window onto a radically different society, where the political and economic systems of today have been relegated to the past. Yet in this brave new world, the carriers still struggle with the most human of concepts: love, tolerance and desire – fear, violence and power.
Translated by Alice E. Olsson.

from The Arab by Pooneh Rohi

With the two interwoven stories in her debut novel, Pooneh Rohi has joined a fray of new voices who chronicle the experience of trying to fit in in a country that fundamentally appears to reject you.
