A magnificent early work focusing on African literature. Words fail me...almost. The author writes excellent essays and critiques on key African novels and novelists. However in the introduction, the author is rather harsh in regards fine African novelists like Lenrie Peters, Cyprian Ekwensi, and Wole Soyinka.
