To mark ten years of the Commonwealth Writers' Prize, Alastair Niven, until recently Arts Council of England Literature Director and now Literature Director of the British Council, and Michael Schmidt assemble an anthology of work by some of the new and established writers who have been recognised by the Prize. Enigmas & Arrivals (its title borrowed from V.S.Naipaul) is a distinctive volume, a resource for general readers of fiction and for teachers and students of English language literatures. Here some of the best writing of a decade is presented, many of the writers choosing the work themselves. The editors provide an introduction and brief biographical and bibliographical notes.
Contributors to this anthology include:
Ama Ata Aidoo
Louis de Bernieres
