Synopsis
American Odysseys is an anthology of twenty-two novelists, poets, and short story writers. Among the featured writers are Ethiopian-born Dinaw Mengestu, the recipient of the 2011 Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise in Literature; Yugoslavian-born Téa Obreht, the youngest author to receive the Orange Prize in Fiction; and Chinese-born Yiyun Li, a MacArthur Genius grantee. The foreword is by U.S. Poet Laureate Charles Simic, the winner of the 2011 Vilcek Prize for Literature. All the authors represented in the anthology were drawn from a shortlist for the 2011 Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise in Literature, as judged by an impressive panel of writers, editors, critics and other experts. The Creative Promise award honors young immigrants in the arts and sciences a mission to publicize the immeasurable value foreign-born individuals bring to America.
