Reviews - What do customers think about Transition 96: Finding Nimco (Transition)?

Great Issue -- Great Fiction  Feb 7, 2007
I've been reading Transition for over twenty years, and this is one of the best issues yet. They've always had great non-fiction, stuff you couldn't find anywhere else, and this issue is no exception: the cover story, Finding Nimco by Achal Prabhala, is fascinating, and the pictures in Textile Skin (Hanna Rose Shell) are incredible.

But this issue will stand out for Transition's fiction, both novel excerpts: Commonwealth Prize-winner Tsitsi Dangarembga's first published excerpt of Tambu's Choice, and PEN Prize-winner Alexander Boldizar's The River Lena, the hilarious stand-alone first chapter of his novel The Ugly (about a tribe of boulder-throwing mountain men in Siberia).

Transition bills itself as being "from Beijing to Bujumbura" and this issue really is a wild literary ride, from Somalia to Siberia, all good.
