The book of other people by Zadie Smith( Book )
1 edition published in 2016 in Korean and held by 1 library worldwide
From the Publisher: A stellar host of writers explore the cornerstone of fiction writing: character. The Book of Other People is about character. Twenty-five or so outstanding writers have been asked by Zadie Smith to make up a fictional character. By any measure, creating character is at the heart of the fictional enterprise, and this book concentrates on writers who share a talent for making something recognizably human out of words (and, in the case of the graphic novelists, pictures). But the purpose of the book is variety: straight "realism"--If such a thing exists-is not the point. There are as many ways to create character as there are writers, and this anthology features a rich assortment of exceptional examples. The writers featured in The Book of Other People include: Aleksandar Hemon; Nick Hornby; Hari Kunzru; Toby Litt; David Mitchell; George Saunders; Colm Toibin; Chris Ware, and more

Best African American fiction 2009 by Gerald Lyn Early( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This inaugural collection of fiction brings together authors across the rich and varied African diaspora experience. Organized into short stories, novel excerpts, and young adult fiction, the collection offers a range of styles, textures, and settings. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichies story is set in Nigeria, where American gangster-rap culture is permeating and guns and tortured loyalties became common. The U.S. and the Caribbean are the settings for Tiphanie Yaniques story of intergenerational and mixed-race tensions between two families. The collection includes an excerpt from Mat Johnsons historical novel set in eighteenth-century New York and an excerpt from Junot D-azs novelset in a contemporary urban ghetto. Also included are works by young adult authors Jacqueline Woodson and Walter Dean Myers. Not meant to be a definitive quasi-Norton edition, this engaging collection still shows the incredible range of talent and focus of fiction written by African Americans
