A strange thing happened today. A few posts ago I was bemoaning the lack of books by African authors in my local library while at the same time praising the African Writers Series for bringing the works of African authors to a British readership. Maybe someone from my local library reads my blog or something, because today when I went into said library, what should I see on the ‘new books’ stand but a range of books from the African Writers Series? As Alice said, curiouser and curiouser. But welcome, all the same!
