The first anthology from long-running London literary magazine Litro, Hearing Voices collects some of the best stories– and the biggest names – to have passed through its pages. Litro has always taken a global view of the literary landscape, publishing writers from across Britain and far, far beyond its shores. Hearing Voices collects some of the best writing to have been published by the magazine during the ten years of its existence.
There are stories from authors on both sides of the Atlantic, spanning locations as far apart as Ithaca and Nairobi – and even the surface of the moon. What connects them is the strength of their voices, and the vibrant originality of their storytelling. Including stories by Pulitzer Prize winner Anthony Doerr, Prix du Premier Roman Etranger winner Chloe Aridjis, Costa shortlisted Nikesh Shukla, Kate Williams, and Betty Trask Award winner Jenn Ashworth. It also introduces Reece Choules, and Polis Loizou – the first authors to sign to Litro’s bespoke literary agency, Litro Represents.
“I love Litro; it’s super cool, and the benchmark for excellent short fiction.”
Emma Jane Unsworth, winner of the Betty Trask Award and author of Animals and Hungry, the Stars and Everything
“Fast establishing itself in the literary landscape, Litro is a journal with voltage and panache.”
Tom Vowler, author of What Lies Within and That Dark Remembered Day
