Topping 700 pages, A Thousand Forests in One Acorn is a doorstop of an anthology with something for everyone. Showcasing 28 writers from Argentina to Honduras to Spain, the anthology is a veritable smorgasbord of literary talent. Nina Zumel reviews this multidimensional collection, which contains the expected (like magical realism) and several surprises, including Faulkner's ghost.
