In 2011, writers, readers, school children, publishers and booksellers from southern Africa came together to celebrate the short story.
In 2012, word spread and people from all over the African continent took part.
In 2013 Short Story Day Africa partnered up with Worldreader and took our stories global.
Now, Short Story Day Africa has assembled the best nineteen stories from their 2013 competition into a dazzling collection from across Africa and the diaspora.
Food is at the centre of stories from authors emerging and established, blending the secular, the supernatural, the old and the new in a spectacular celebration of short fiction. Civil wars, evictions, vacations, feasts and romances – the stories we bring to our tables that bring us together and tear us apart.
Includes the winning story, “My Father’s Head”, by Okwiri Oduor, with a foreword by Rachel Zadok
