I know I have read quite a few books on Africa and/or by African writers, but I still have the following four on my TBR shelves:
- Chicago, by Alaa al Aswany – North Africa/Egypt
- An elegy for Easterly, by Petina Gappah – Central Africa/Zimbabwe – short stories
- Broken glass, by Alain Mabanckou – Central Africa/Congo – in translation from French
- The cry of Winnie Mandela, by Njabulo Ndebele – South Africa
So I have decided to move them onto a more obvious TBR pile on my desk, so I will know to pick one of them up as I move to something new with an African flavour.
I only hope that this strategy works!
