As a polyglot and lover of languages, I found this book very useful, insightful and wonderful. This book featured different writers and I discovered a lot of new writers which I will be willing to read and explore. Some of the writers who contributed to this book are Amy Tan and Ngugi wo Thiong O, both my favorites. This book is best read when one wants to have some time reading a good informative book because it will give you a lot to learn and discover about languages in general, as well as glimpse a writer's mind, especially non-native writers either writing in English or translated into English. This is a gem worth having!
