Four authors whose fiction is firmly fixed in place and culture talk about depicting the soul of a country while also exploring universal concerns. Though none of their stories could take place in any other country, these portraits of Haiti, Vietnam, India and Jamaica are no travelogues. Rooted in the personal and encompassing the political, they take you into the backstreets, the slums, the rural Indian countryside and the storm of shellfire.
Appearing with Marlon James, Roxane Gay & Viet Thanh Nguyen
Host: Jared Bland
