Editorial Reviews

Review

I know of no other book like this one and it provides an introduction to an extremely important but ignored cultural phenomenon...an important field of African writing that has been invisible for the most part in North America and Europe. The range of articles examining the reading practices of the majority of Africans on the continent forces a reconsideration of the idea of 'African literature'.- Eileen Julien, Indiana University ... this volume is essential reading not only for specialists in the field but for all those interested in African cultural life. It provides an invaluable sources of material for scholars, teachers and students of African literature as well as for a more general readership wishing to familiarise themselves with less widely known African popular texts, theory and criticism.' - Sue Kossew in ARAS This is a rich and intelligently conceived anthology... the examples presented here also challenge the usual paradigms now taken for granted in postcolonial studies, and demonstrate that 'subaltern voices' so often assumed to be silent or suppressed can be heard loud and clear if one cares to locate oneself outside Western academies and networks. - C.L. Innes, University of Kent at Canterbury --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
