  1. Oh, I seem to have finished. This challenge has been great: without it, I’d never have been introduced to some true continental titans: Nuruddin Farah (‘Crossbones’) and Ahmadou Kourouma (‘Waiting For The Wild Beasts To Vote’), to name but two. I enjoyed Noo Saro-Wiwa’s Nigerian travelogue, ‘Looking For Transwonderland’. I was intrigued by Joseph Brahim Seid’s ‘Told By Starlight In Chad’. And last but by no means least, my favourite book of the year – ‘Azazeel’ by Youssef Ziedan. A little top-heavy on the northern Africa, perhaps, but a good starting point! Thanks for the opportunity!
