Kagiso Lesego Molope. Dancing in the Dust (novel)

Sophia Mustafa. In the Shadow of Kirinyaga (novel) 

It is the 1930s, in colonial Kenya; Mussolini has just invaded Ethiopia (Abyssinia) and a Muslim family braces itself for a series of weddings.



Nalini Warriar. Blues from the Malabar Coast (stories) 

Joyful, poignant, and sad, this wonderful collection tells a story in its many stories, of a village and its people, of a nation, and of our times.
