Crime lords and petty bureaucrats conspire to throw a country into turmoil. A city is ravaged by a war between proponents of inflexible ideologies. A tragedy leaves a society searching for answers and reassurance. We could be talking about Italy or Uganda, Spain or Lebanon, Norway or the United States, but each setting lends a special inflection to the story that unfolds there. Indulge your literary wanderlust with these writers who offer insight into both the importance of place and the constants of human nature.
