About this book

The leading African literary award, known as the African Booker, named after the Booker Prize founder, Michael Caine. Now entering its nineteenth year, the Caine Prize for African Writing is Africa's leading literary prize, and is awarded to a short story by an African writer published in English, whether in Africa or elsewhere. This collection brings together twelve short stories- the five 2018 shortlisted stories, along with others written at the 2018 Caine Prize Writers' Workshop that took place in Rwanda.

The collection showcases young writers who go on to publish successful novels, for instance: Leila Aboulela, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Sefi Atta, Brian Chikwava and Helon Habila.

The collection also includes the following twelve stories written at the workshop:
