Short and Bittersweet
Despite geographical differences, there are intriguing similarities between the short stories of Nicole Flattery and Samanta Schweblin. Flattery’s Show Them A Good Time marks her as a bright star in the luminous galaxy of Irish literature. In Mouthful of Birds, Schweblin gathers stories written over several years; understandably, Argentina’s new superstar has again caught the eye of the Booker International Prize judges. The two authors discuss their books with Nigerian author, editor and publisher Emmanuel Iduma.
