Novel Views of Africa

If you like your books ‘dazzling’ and ‘as ambitious as any first novel published this decade’, look no further than Chigozie Obioma and Namwali Serpell. Obioma’s An Orchestra of Minorities is his Nigeria-set follow-up to Booker-shortlisted debut The Fishermen, while Serpell’s remarkable debut novel The Old Drift is set mostly in Zambia, where she was born. Both books evoke an Africa that’s rarely seen on news bulletins.
