about

Award-winning and new authors from Congo to Hollywood join forcesin Harvard Square Editions' second volume of Living Fiction, andthey are donating the net proceeds from the sale of this book to theNobel Prize-winning charity Doctors Without Borders/Médecins SansFrontières (MSF). Most anthologies are limited by their themes to a particular town or country, reinforcing entrenched literary nationalism whereby institutionalized literati only appreciate their own. Not Voice from the Planet. This collection of extraordinary voices is unlimited. It will transport you on a globe-trotting adventure from the trauma of African earthquake to a lush glimpse of love in the jungles of Peru. Break through to war-torn Congo,to American rebellion of the 1960s, to fire dancing in the mountains of Bulgaria, to high finance on 9/11. You'll find the unexpected wit and intelligence in this volume enthralling. The second in a series of anthologies of Living Fiction edited by Harvardalumni, Voice from the Planet is generative. It opens a forum where readers and Planet authors can engage in cyberliterary dialogue via the Internet. Readers can take part in the dialogue by emailing the authors and chatting on the web at www.harvardsquareeditions.org
