Speaking for the Generations: An Anthology of Contemporary African Short Stories
Dike Okoro (Editor)
This anthology aims to represent the best of contemporary African short stories written in English. Familiar names such as Benjamin Kwakye, Tijan Sallah, Zahra Ramij, Freddy Macha, Arja Salafranca, Odun Balogun, Tanure Ojaide, Jackee Budesta Batanda, Lola Shoneyin, Mohamed Said Raihani and Omar Akikli are present along with the new talent of younger generation which includes Kondwani Kamiyala, Ayobami Adebayo, Prince Mensah, Dipita Kwa, Khadija El Younossi. This book will introduce readers to finely crafted stories or human conditions comparable to those captured in narratives from other parts of the world.
"This anthology boasts two major strengths. First, it brings North Africa into a conversation with sub-Saharan Africa as very few such anthologies of African literature have so far done. Second, there is an invigorating freshness about the new talents brought to our attention here as well as an urgency in their reflections on contemporary African and global issues. Dike Okoro should be commended for the imagination he has shown in putting together a collection of stories anyone - student, teacher, or general reader - would love to possess and share with others."
