Description

This anthology of African short stories assembles together twenty-six stories by the best of contemporary African writers including many women writers. As distinct and complex as the nations the writers come from, these stories illuminate a slice of contemporary African life.

The foreword by Chinua Acheba places the African short story within its historical context. A compelling read, that brings to us a rich writing tradition barely known in this country.
