This book is a first in combining essays from women about their African fathers and vice versa and will not only provide a significant set of insights into the relationship between fathers and daughters but also explore gaps in the perception of African Fatherhood. The book opens a window on this often, vexing relationship and draws on African experiences that reflect the complexities and nuances of a relationship that is at once universal as it is local. Contributors include prominent African scholars, writers and critics such as Abiola Irele, Simon Gikandi, Harry Garuba, Helon Habila, Leila Aboulela, Paul Tiyambe Zeleza, Abena Busia et al.
