Reading in the City

Celebrating the best translated short stories from around the world. Since 2006, Comma Press have sourced a selection of ten authors from specific cities to collate ten short stories that depict the social, historical or political essence of their contemporary city. Each story is translated (for the first time) into English and published, so that each anthology is a ‘city in short fiction’.
