Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Whats on the minds of African writers? The South African chapter of PEN International asked this question, and this volume collects the answer they received. More than 800 pieces of new writing were submitted in response to the call for entries for the PEN/Studzinski Literary Award. This collection contains the 34 short stories that were selected as prize winners or for honorable mention by judge J. M. Coetzee. This book offers a contemporary African journey that takes readers from Algeria to Zimbabwe, with stops along the way in Nigeria, Cameroon, Uganda, Kenya, Zambia, Mauritius, Botswana, Mozambique, and South Africa. The writers are young and old, established and unpublished, and the subject matter as diverse as Africa itself.
