Even though we are a globalized nation, what we read is fairly English-centric. We prefer to read what is familiar and comfortable. Even when we venture out of our comfort zone, it is more likely to another English-centric genre. This tends to show in what is getting published year-to-year. According to the BBC, only 3% of total publishers output are works that are translated. We have almost no insight into what the world is reading - making us myopic and, possibly, more intolerant. As quoted from Lit Hub, Nigerian poet Ben Okri said, “Stories can conquer fear, you know. They can make the heart bigger.” If we are willing to expand our vision of the world through imaginative visions of video games and science fiction, we should be willing to open our minds to other cultures too.
