From the Publisher“In its optimism and affirmative tone, (Twelve Best Books by African Women) echoes and expands on Juliana Makuchi Nfah-Abbenyi’s Gender in African Women’s Writing: Identity, Sexuality, and Difference and on Ogunyemi’s pioneering criticism. Highly recommended."
“After (the) inspiring introduction, each title is examined sensitively and in depth. The books chosen range from North to South Africa and were originally written in English or French; all are excellent fictional texts from the 1970s to the 1990s. The analyses are aimed primarily for college-level study, though secondary school teachers can find them useful. All are interesting and extremely insightful.”
— MultiCultural Review
“This is an important work for those interested in gender studies and literature, specifically those who wish to learn more about African women’s representation of themselves and their realities.”
