LITERATURE: African authors and/or books about Africa

During 2014 I contributed to several issues of the Danish Foreign Ministry's magazine 'Udvikling', and their page about new cultural stuff from around the world. As well as with music, it means that I've been looking for liiterature. Here, is a compilation relating to Africa, some books already read, lots still waiting to be read.

Dive in here!

Do also read ise Gardsdal's article here about African literature in the Danish daily Politken.
