‘The lunatic, the lover, and the poet,
are of imagination all compact.’
– William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream

To commemorate the 400th anniversary of the deaths of William Shakespeare and Miguel de Cervantes, And Other Stories and Hay Festival have selected twelve contemporary international authors to each write an original and previously unpublished story as their tribute to these giants of world literature.

In order to celebrate the international influence of both writers and offer us new and intriguing perspectives on them, six English-speaking authors have taken inspiration from Cervantes and his work, while six Spanish-language authors have written stories inspired by Shakespeare. An introduction by Salman Rushdie explores the liberating legacy of Cervantes and Shakespeare for contemporary fiction.

The authors are Ben Okri, Deborah Levy, Kamila Shamsie, Yuri Herrera, Marcos Giralt Torrente, Juan Gabriel Vásquez, Vicente Molina Foix, Soledad Puértolas, Hisham Matar, Nell Leyshon, Rhidian Brook and Valeria Luiselli. An introduction by Salman Rushdie explores the liberating legacy of Cervantes and Shakespeare for contemporary fiction.

    his Ars Poetica Horace said that a work should not be published until ten years after it has been completed; but he wasn’t living in an age dominated by competent, inoffensive novels with redemptive endings.

    My mother’s great joy comes from Julia and I seeing each other, sitting together around the dining room table under her satisfied gaze, as if the two of us being there, by her side, were a guarantee of something, of some sort of continuity, beyond plans and personal wishes, something transcendent that will last forever.
