Tania James, Sayaka Murata and Mariana Enriquez A bit of a spoiler For those wondering, I skipped the story about the dog yeah, that one I feel like this kind of explicit writing disturbs me to the core and I really can t deal with that right now If there is special meaning or something deep about the characters I should understand or take away from stories like this, it never works out because my mind shuts down immediately at the first sign of distress Call me hypocrite since I can read about violence on people but even that takes me a long time and I skim through it, holding my breath fine, but reading explicit material about animals in pain is, to put it mildly, not my fucking cup of tea flag 1 likeLike see review Dec 24, 2017 Blair marked it as dipped in review of another edition

fourth, edition, Freeman has brought together twenty nine writers to produce a compendium of essays, poems, and short stories from across the globe, writers whom he has selected because they represent the future of new writing An anthology this broad and diverse including writers from Somalia, Iran, Mexico, China, Argentina, Japan, France, Brazil, Jamaica, Vietnam, Canada, Norway, U.K and the U.S is a difficult work to summarize or even to critique Freeman s curatorial eye and his vision for anthologizing is impressive There is no obvious common thread tying these works nor these writers together Some pieces are lush, some are dark, some are full of wit and wonder All are fresh and, as a collection, have an international feel and representation that fuels excitement about The Future
