the 10 best african writers

The compiler of this list (professor John Masterton) did one easy step: he excluded Chinua Achebe. Maybe because everyone would have listed this Nigerian writer.

I enjoy reading about Africa. New books. Old books. By African writers. By non-African writers. Novel. History. Travel. Biographies. Autobiographies. Politics. Colonialism. Poetry.
