G.D. Killam's guide to African writers who use English in their work will be an invaluable resource to all interested in African, colonial, and post-colonial writing. Divided into four sections reflecting the major geographical areas, the book offers a comprehensive overview of the life and work of a wide range of both well- and lesser-known authors. Each section has an introductory essay mapping the literary and socio-political development of a given area, giving a real sense of the characteristics and concerns of a host of authors and enabling a fuller appreciation of the rich body of work they have produced.
