Rarely have world writers of such variety and distinction appeared on a contents list in the same anthology. The list includes Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Margaret Atwood, John Updike, Susan Sontag, Hanif Kureishi and Jose Saramago. Nadine Gordimer, has edited and introduces the collection. Their stories capture the range of emotions and situations of our human universe: tragedy, comedy, fantasy, satire, dramas of sexual love and of war, in different continents and cultures.

Along with making music, the art of story-telling is the oldest form of enchantment as entertainment. The twenty-one stories in this anthology are written in different 'voices' - vividly individual styles - capturing the marvellous possibilities of the use of words by living writers.

All twenty-one writers have given their stories without any fee or royalty. The originating publishers of each edition have produced the book without receiving any profit or royalty. All proceeds will go to an HIV/Aids charity.
