The Heinemann Book of Contemporary African Short Stories, Paperback

The Heinemann Book of Contemporary African Short Stories Paperback

Edited by Chinua Achebe, C. L. Innes

Part of the Heinemann African Writers Series series



Capturing the diversity of African writing from across the continent, this important anthology draws together well-established authors and the best of new writers.

From the harsh realities of South Africa, elegantly described by Nobel Prize winner Nadine Gordimer, to the fantastic world of Booker Prize winner Ben Okri and from the magic realism of Mozambican Mia Couto to the surreal world of Ghanaian Kojo Laing, the editors have distilled the essence of contemporary African writing.

Blending the supernatural and the secular, the market-place and the shrine, this anthology gives the reader a taste of the full range of African literary styles.
