Fiction from Africa



Stories of the horrors in Africa in the last few years have been told by very courageous, honest intellectuals, and brilliant writers. One of the most recent is Say You Are One Of Them by Uwem Akpan. Others include What is the What by Dave Eggers; They Poured Us From The Sky by by Benjamin Ajak, Benson Deng, Alephonsian Deng, Judy Bernstein.. Wizard of the Crow by Ngugi Wa'Thiong'O is incredible.

I love Dave Eggers; read both What is the What and Staggering Work of Heartbreaking Genius. Thanks for the other book suggestions, Hazel; will add them to my library list.
