message 1: by Danielle (new)

Danielle Thanks for this list. I hope you don't mind that I added a few more. I wasn't sure what to do with "What is the What": technically fiction, but obviously based mostly on fact.


message 2: by Saturday's (new)

Saturday's Child Hi Danielle, thanks for adding to this list. I often find that fiction based on fact is well worth reading.


message 3: by January (new)

January Thanks for this list. It is a gold mine. I am currently doing research for my latest book of poetry/short fiction concerning the rise of Africa in the new economic era. These varied titles provide the appropriate grounding for conversation about how far the continent has come in recent decades since revolution. Missing from this list is, perhaps, Ama Ata Aidoo's Changes and No Sweetness Here. The list is superb!


message 4: by Saturday's (new)

Saturday's Child Hi January Nicole - glad you like this list which I began I as enjoy reading fiction books about Africa so I wanted to see what else was out there to read. I always enjoy other people's recommendations. Please feel free to add books to it. :)


message 5: by Chris (new)

Chris LOVE this list.... I've mostly been reading non-fiction about Zimbabwe (after visiting there 2 years ago), which I love, but this list is totally GOLD! thank-you!


message 6: by Saturday's (new)

Saturday's Child Glad you like it Chris - keep up the reading :)


message 7: by P. (new)

P. Zoro Hi

I am an African Travel Fiction Author. I wanted to know if it's OK to add my own book to the list. Wouldn't want to offend anyone.

Thank you.


message 8: by Saturday's (new)

Saturday's Child Yes - please do :)

Booklovinglady Out of Africa / Shadows on the Grass (currently #146) is, as far as I know, not a work of fiction....

The description of the list says "Any work of fiction that is set in or has Africa in the plot", which is why I haven't added Terug naar Kongo for example, as it is not fiction either (even though it makes a great read).

I haven't removed Out of Africa / Shadows on the Grass (yet), as I'm not the owner of this list :-)


message 11: by Sue (new)

Sue "Out of Africa" #19 is NOT fiction


message 12: by Sue (new)

Sue "West with the night" #161 is NOT fiction


message 13: by Booklovinglady (last edited Aug 22, 2015 07:55AM) (new)

I've removed Out of Africa, as well as Out of Africa / Shadows on the Grass, as neither titles match the criteria of this list. Haven't removed the other title you mentioned though, as I haven't read it myself.


message 14: by Sue (new)

Sue West with the Night is a memoir of her experiences learning to fly and then attempted solo flight to America


message 15: by Saturday's (new)

Saturday's Child Thanks Sue for removing the Out of Africa ones - West with the Night is non-fiction I'd be happy for that one to be removed as well. :)
