Description

Now in its 10th year, the Caine Price presents another unmissable opportunity to tune in to what is going on in African fiction. It brings together the shortlist for the 2009 award as well as stories written at the Caine Price writers’ workshop held near Accra, Ghana – in all, 16 short stories that make up some of the best new writing from across the continent.

The prize is awarded to African writers who have published fiction within Africa or elsewhere in the world. The 2009 shortlisted authors are:

Mamle Kabu [Ghana] for 'The end of Skill'
Parselelo Kantai [Kenya] for 'You Wreck Her'
Alistair Morgan [South Africa] for 'Icebergs'
EC Osondu [Nigeria] for 'Waiting'
Mukoma wa Ngugi [Kenya] for 'How Kamau wa Mwangi Escaped into Exile'

Last year’s winner, Henrietta Rose-Innes, is one of 11 other writers featured in this remarkable collection which showcases the cultural relevance of the short story and up-and-coming talent in equal measure.
