Storytelling knows no geographical bounds.

South American magic-realism, Scandinavian crime, Japanese surrealism, Sudanese social realism, Greek lyric poems, Indian epics, Chinese hallucinatory dream quests… Literature is as wonderfully diverse as the individuals and cultures that create and shape it. And translation to English allows monolinguists to travel the globe, opening windows to view the world from distant perspectives. Here are some incredible translated works to stamp your literary passport.
