    A lot of books you’ve really digested. Great efforts there. Keep it up and guess with that sort of information, you most definitely have ideas and info on almost every subject>


  2. Impressive list. I’ve read some of these books ages ago. I may have to read them again for better appreciation so I can review them.

    I just found your blog. It looks like a great resource! ( I occasionally teach a course on African literature.)


  7. A Gomez says:

    No Bessie Head? Yet?

    Please, try Tales of Tenderness and Power, AWS, 1989

    Really sad for Auntie Bessie that she died before 1994; may she rest in peace, as she smiles down on the result of her life’s work and struggles.


  8. Great. Have you read Sri Aurobindo’s epic poem ( the longest epic poem in English ) SAVITRI ?
    I translated it into TELUGU.
    I thought we can explore the theme from African and Indian perspectives!
