Gene Luen Yang, winner of the 2023 NSK Neustadt Prize for Children’s and Young Adult Literature, headlines the January 2024 issue of World Literature Today. Also inside, we spotlight Sona Jobarteh’s kora virtuosity, Icelandic noir by Katrine Jakobsdóttir and Ragnar Jónasson, and an essay on Holocaust survivor Stella Levi. Additional highlights include an essay on the untranslatable Korean term han as well as visits to Manitoba, Uruguay, and Wales. As always, lively mini-interviews, compelling poetry, and more than thirty book reviews—plus recommended reads and other great content—make the latest issue of WLT, like every issue, your passport to great reading.
