In Focus: Sudan
This May 2022, we launch our third “In Focus” section. For our “New & Inventive Voices” feature, we asked a number of Sudanese writers to put together a list of their highlights from among recent books, and for “Women Recommend: Sudanese Women Writers,” women writers give an overview of the landscape as well as their favorites by other women. We also have new fiction and poetry in translation, as well as interviews, essays, art, and more. Explore more special features below, with more from our archives on the left.
