Jul 15, 2018 rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
A very solid collection of new literary voices, taking the term world literature seriously. Samantha Schweblin, Mariana Enríquez, Tania James, Sayaka Murata and Mieko Kawakami deliver first-rate short stories. Diego Enrique Osornos reportage from Mexico (Come and Eat the Largest Shrimp Cocktail in the World in the Region of the Worst Massacres in Mexico) is simply astounding. The selection of poetry, however, sits less comfortably within the collection. John Freeman, in the preface: What you ...more

Raccolta molto interessante di nuove voci non solo americane ma da tutto il mondo. Benvenuta Freeman's in Italia!

Man, what a ride. Reading as traveling, really. 28 new, emerging, bold and wonderful writers, from 20 different countries, aged 25-70! If this is not diverse enough of an anthology, I don't know what is. I am always a fan of anthologies, I love to see and feel different styles once I turn the page onto a new story and I find it difficult to gather enough variety without it seeming too chaotic. In this sense, this collection is very well thought of. Of course, I gathered up some names to put on ...more

Recensione pubblicata originariamente sul mio blog Arte della Lettura

Recensione Freeman's. Scrittori dal futuro (senza spoiler)
Freeman's. Scrittori dal futuro è una raccolta di racconti brevi o di estratti curata da John Freeman.

Il tema di questa raccolta dovrebbero essere gli scrittori dal futuro, coloro che "nell'attuale clima di chiusura ed esclusione sono riusciti a guardare al di là delle barriere di identità nazionale, età o genere [...] per rivendicare il diritto a fare della scrittura

Editor John Freeman has been making his mark in the publishing world with his relatively recent creation of the Freemans Journal. In this, the fourth, edition, Freeman has brought together twenty-nine writers to produce a compendium of essays, poems, and short stories from across the globe, writers whom he has selected because they represent the future of new writing.

An anthology this broad and diverse including writers from Somalia,

Good collection of new writing with a very diverse roster. I was moved by:

- The Case That Got Away (A Yi)
- Where Are You, Sweetheart (Mariana Enríquez)
- The Dog's Been Barking All Day (Xu Zechen)
- I Is Another (Valeria Luiselli)
- A Song for Robin (Heather O'Neill)

Surprising reads from a group of diverse writers. Experimental and inspiring. If you're interested in reading about a girl who gets aroused by the sound of heartbeats or a jacket made from human hair, this journal is for you.
Valeria Luiselli's essay is academic pretension at its best. She's really on a roll with writing about institutional questionnaires.

Loads of fun. These anthologies just keep getting better. "A First-Rate Material" by Sayaka Murata ends with a truly haunting image of a veil made out of human skin that I just loved. ...more
