Telling Tales on World AIDS Day

NEW YORK, 1 December 2004—Nadine Gordimer, winner of the 1991 Nobel Prize for Literature, asked 20 major writers to donate a short story to a new anthology, Telling Tales for the benefit of AIDS charities and HIV education and treatment in southern Africa. Published today in the United States by Farrar, Straus & Giroux/ Picador, and ten other countries in nine languages, the collection features stories by Gabriel García Marquez, Margaret Atwood, Günter Grass, John Updike, Susan Sontag, Hanif Kureishi, Paul Therouux, Salman Rushdie, Arthur Miller, José Saramago, Es’kia Mphahlele, Ingo Schulze, Chinua Achebe, Amos Oz, Michel Tournier, Njabulo Ndebele, Claudio Magris, Christa Wolf, Woody Allen, Nadine Gordimer and Kenzaburo Oe. While these are not new works or specifically about HIV / AIDS, all twenty-one writers have given their stories without any fee or royalty. The publishers of each edition in each country where the anthology is published have produced the book without receiving any profit or royalty.
