'An admirable and essential gateway to current African fiction' Booklist; 'A wonderful set of 16 stories that covers a lot of ground and features many genres-from myth and folklore to the postmodern and experimental-in a way that will surely satisfy readers.' Kirkus Reviews; 'To me this isn't just the best fiction Africa has to offer, it's some of the best fiction the world has to offer...These writers are a reminder that there's a huge production of literature going on in Africa that can and should be part of the global conversation.' Coilin Parsons, Irish literary scholar; 'Entertaining. Deserves to be widely read.' Sunday Independent, South Africa.
