How not to talk about African fiction

This weblog is an attempt to bring to the attention of a worldwide audience book by African authors and books about Africa. I do not limit myself to literature, but at times I pay attention to travel books, history and other topics. I do not make comparisons with literature from other continents. It seems to me a difficult, if not impossible, task.

In this article you will find some thought on how not to talk about African fiction. One voice amidst many voices.
