An African Quilt: 24 Modern African Stories (Signet Classics)

Signet, December 2012. Mass Market Paperback. Item #1116
ISBN: 0451532031


Encompassing many different visions of Africa, the stories in this comprehensive collection feature characters struggling to survive grinding poverty, tyrannical governments, cultural upheavals, and disintegrating relationships.

Reflecting a continent with a tragic history, An African Quilt depicts a place where even everyday life is extraordinary, and the continent's history changes what it means to be a woman, an employee, a couple, a passerby, and, of course, a citizen. Revealed through the backdrop of postcolonial Africa, the struggles within these stories resonate beyond their context and appeal to every reader's sense of what it means to be human.

Includes Stories by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Nadine Gordimer (Winner of the Nobel Prize), Bessie Head, Doris Lessing (Winner of the Nobel Prize), Ngugi wa Thiong'o, and Others
