CBC.ca | The Homestretch | African women’s literature.

Well I’ve completed my third segment on the radio, and I was feeling less sweaty than the first two times, so I’m going to take this as a good sign. I chose these two books based on the term “Afropolitan”, which was coined by Taiye Selasi, as I thought they both fit into this new genre quite nicely. Both Ghana Must Go, and We Need New Names are written by two, highly-lauded debut novelists who deserve all the praise that is heaped upon them. I’ll be on the radio again next Monday, which some fun beach reads (a guilty pleasure I don’t indulge in very often, but guaranteed fun all the same).
