I am currently writing a novel on BC Ethiopia, but am not here to plug that, rest assured.
Rather, I'm looking for recommendations of historical fiction set in Africa. Any period.
Some of my favourites to date are:
The Egyptian: A Novel (Rediscovered Classics), Mika Waltari
The Abyssinian: A Novel, Jean-Christophe Rufin
The Poisonwood Bible: A Novel (P.S.), Barbara Kingslover
Makeda, Prue Sobers
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Those more recently published preferred.
