African Short Stories Reviews


"'A fine anthology, well selected, well ordered, and altogether a pleasure to read. The editors have chosen twenty stories by twenty different writers from all over Africa, grouping them geographically into four different sections: West, East, North and Southern Africa... They have done a particularly good job of balancing the work of lesser-known, younger writers with established figures: David Owoyele as well as Adhebe, Abdulrzak Gurnah as well as Ngugi, Ahmed Essop as well as Nadine Gordimer and Bessie Head.'"
World Literature Today


"'There is indeed wonderful writing in the collection'."
New York Literary Supplement


"'A highly recommended book for teachers to use as an introduction (a) to the short story and (b) to Africa.'"
The Times Educational Supplement, Edward Blishen

"'...African Short Stories is a worthy showcase of recent African writing...""
