The silence on bookish stuff will continue for a while longer here at Kinna Reads. I am behind on reviews, edits of the Africa Reading Challenge post and comments. I am currently buried under a pile of work and projects. I hope things return to their manageable status before the end of this month. Please forgive the silence. Regular programming will return very soon.
In the meantime, I’ve been reading and enjoying Contemporary African Short Stories (edited by Chinua Achebe and C.L. Innes). Njabulo Ndebele’s “The Prophetess” opens the anthology. It’s a sensitive and delightful story about a boy and his ailing mother. I know I crow often about The Cry of Winnie Mandela but this story confirms my impression of Ndebele as one of the most generous and gifted of African writers.
Enjoy your reading!
