The stories in New Nepal, New Voices illustrate that Nepali writing in English is not only alive but bursting with energy. Gone are the days of tortured metaphors borrowed from Shelley and Keats, the days of believing that the only way we could write was by mimicking the literary giants of our southern neighour. The narratives in this book are distinctively Nepali, but they also move beyond the bounaries of the parochial, landlocked Nepal and reveal a country whose physical space is as fluid as its national identity. Ajit Baral is a writer based in Kathmandu. He has contributed to Biblio: A Review of Books, Tehelka, The book Review, The Daily Star, and to several other Nepali newspapers and journals. His collection of interviewa with international writers was published in 2007. He edits Read, a quarterly book magazine and runs a publishing house called Fine Print.
