Been There, Read That!: Stories for the Armchair Traveller
Publisher:Victoria University Press
In this eclectic compendium of translated international stories, a wide range of voices present connections with different ethnicities and provide an opportunity to see the world in a new light. From Spain and Switzerland to Korea, Tahiti, and Mexico, these multicultural stories include a young boy from a backcountry town who struggles with the mysteries and inconsistencies of adult behavior, a French mayor and his community who try desperately to maintain the appearance of normalcy, a scrawny rooster who turns out to be a champion cock fighter, and a young girl who travels to Seoul and is dazzled and disappointed by what she finds. Filled with fresh voices, many of which appear in English for the first time, this collection is a memorable literary sojourn around the world.
