Salman Rushdie was sentenced to death for his words in »The Satanic Verses« and is still in hiding. Václav Havel spent five years in prison because of his words, and later, by virtue of those same words, became president of his country. Khomeini's use of power of words led to his mesmerising seduction of his people, words conveyed Orwell's images of a future world. Words also allowed the Princess Scheherazade to enchant her sultan with tales so entrancing that the storytelling went on for a thousand and one nights and Scheherazade married her prince instead of losing her head. In the company of eminent writers such as Günter Wallraff, Joseph Brodsky, Julio Llamazares, Aziz Nesin, Paul Auster, Villy Sorensen and Mario Vargas Llosa, WORDS investigates and celebrates words as mediums of reality and seduction, might and faith, experience and belief; as political tools, poetry and declarations of love.
