In many respects this Issue of Double Dialogues follows the previous bi-lingual Issue Eighteen. Not only does it introduce a number of established and emerging writers to Anglophone readers, but it also presents a highly diverse range of responses to the Issue’s thematic thread. We initially spoke in terms of submitting pieces thematically and/or verbally linked to the theme of living in perpetual transition where, in the words of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, “To be sane in a world of madmen is in itself a kind of madness”. In choosing otherwise unrelated writers from China, Catalonia, and Romania is the fact that all have lived or been uprooted during or in the aftermath of tyrannical times.
