Overview
-

This collection edited by Ivor Agyeman-Duah is an important and timely publication that brings together bright voices comprising budding and accomplished African writers under one roof. The collection is dynamic and engaging in covering different experiences within Africa and its Diaspora. There are stories of harrowing experiences that document human interaction that are emotionally charged and full of pain and sadness. However, there are also several life-affirming narratives throughout the collection that give hope to the possibilities of human bonding in multiple and appealing ways and bear testimony to the ultimate power of human goodness. The writers are skilled artisans who display their dexterity in the way that they deploy language and images to engage their readers’ attention and imagination
