FIRST WORDS: World Literature Today
In each issue, First Words will introduce a writer new to our pages. Read the beginning of a previously unpublished story by the writer in our print edition, then read the whole piece here on our website. This issue, read Sushma Joshi’s (Nepal) gripping story “The Little Girl Who Died.” Joshi is a writer and filmmaker whose stories have appeared in many publications worldwide. Her “End of the World” was long-listed for the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award. Joshi has a bachelor’s in international relations from Brown University and a master’s in English literature from Middlebury College.
