The April 2013 issue of the journal Asymptote is out!

The Africa Feature highlights Pierre Joris, Helen Oyeyemi, Habib Tengour, Geoff Wisner,
Yasmina Khadra, Will McGrath, and 2012 Nigeria Literature Prize winner Chika Unigwe, among others. Also in the contents are an introduction to the work of Hungarian writer Miklós Szentkuthy, via Rainer J. Hanshe’s illuminating essay and Tim Wilkinson’s agile rendition; an interview with Margaret Jull Costa; new translations by Lawrence Venuti, Don Mee Choi, Steve Bradbury (who gives us our first work from Hong Kong); and Jonas Hassen Khemiri’s personal plea against racial profiling in the form of an open letter to a Swedish minister asking her to change skins with him. It has since become the most linked-to article in Swedish history.
