1914-Goodbye to All That borrows its title from Robert Gravess bitter leave-taking of England in which he writes not only of the First World War but the questions it raised: how to live, how to live with each other, and how to write.Interpreting this title as broadly and ambiguously as Graves intended, these essays mark the Wars centenary by reinvigorating these questions. The book includes Elif Shafak on an inheritance of silence in Turkey, Ali Smith on lost voices in Scotland, Xiaolu Guo on the 100,000 Chinese sent to the Front, Daniel Kehlmann on hypnotism in Berlin, Colm Toibin on Lady Gregory losing her son fighting for Britain as she fought for an independent Ireland, Kamila Shamsie on reimagining Karachi, Erwin Mortier on occupied Belgiums legacy of shame, NoViolet Bulawayo on Zimbabwe and clarity, Ales Steger on resisting history in Slovenia, and Jeanette Winterson on what art is for.Contributors include:Ali Smith - ScotlandAles Steger - SloveniaJeanette Winterson - EnglandElif Shafak - TurkeyNoViolet Bulawayo - ZimbabweColm Toibin - IrelandXiaolu Guo - ChinaErwin Mortier - BelgiumKamila Shamsie - PakistanDaniel Kehlmann - Germany
