I could not find the date of publication of this article on African writers. It is a top ten of contemporary writers. Tops are always debatable. So is this one. I noticed Wole Soyinka is missing. He won a Nobel Prize for Literature, no mean achievement, in 1986. Or J.M Coetzee, who won the prize in 2003. And what about Naguib Mahfouz, who won the prize in 1988?
Everyone is entitled to his or her own list.
What do you think? Who should have been included in the list?
