What are African Writers thinking and writing about as the first decade of the 21st century draws to a close? The South African Centre of International PEN asked the question, and the volume you have in your hands holds the answer.

More than 800 pieces of new writing from across the continent flowed in once the call for entries was made for the PEN/Studzinski Literary Award. This collection contains the 34 short stories eventually selected, including the prize-winners and those receiving honourable mentions from final judge JM Coetzee.

This is a contemporary African reading journey that will take you from Algeria to Zimbabwe, with sops along the way in Nigeria, Cameroon, Uganda, Kenya, Zambia, Mauritius, Botswana, Mozambique and South Africa. The writers are young and old, established and unpublished; the subject matter as diverse as Africa itself. It is an African literary journey at this particular juncture, and it is one to be savoured.
