Fiction in Translation: International Writers and Underrepresented Perspectives at Emory

A LibGuide highlighting popular literary works written by international authors in Emory's collection. The focus is on works translated into English and underrepresented perspectives in these regions.


Welcome to the Emory Libraries guide to fiction in translation! This guide will introduce you to well-known fiction writers from around the world who have been translated into English in our collection. A special focus has been placed on highlighting authors who bring an underrepresented perspective to their literary contexts. This includes writers from racial, ethnic, and indigenous minority backgrounds as well as sexual and gender minorities. It also includes those authors who are known for their experimentation in form and genre.
