The world is a complex place. If you've never been to a country like Somalia, or talked with someone from there, how can you gain a better understanding of its people and culture? This book set brings together seven books--novels and short fiction anthologies--written by authors from the countries affected by the “Travel Ban”: Iraq, Iran, Somalia, Sudan and South Sudan, Yemen, Libya, and Syria. The set is grouped together with a book-band inscribed with each language’s word for “Read.” These are universal stories of love, loss, and hope, but each one is written in a literary style that is unique, and with geographic and cultural references that are steeped in the local cultures. Ten percent of every Books Without Borders Collection sold will be donated to The International Refugee Assistance Project. Includes: Contemporary Iraqi Fiction: An Anthology edited by Shakir Mustafa, Literary Sudans: An Anthology of Literature from Sudan and South Sudan edited by Bhakti Shringarpure, The Blind Owl by Sadegh Hedayat, Links by Nuruddin Farah, The Hostage by Zayd Mutee’ Dammaj, Sabriya: Damascus Bitter Sweet by Ulfat Idilbi, and Anatomy of a Disappearance by Hisham Matar.
