Out of West Africa
28th July 2013
A rich and multilayered culture comes out of West Africa and out of Nigeria – the seventh most populous country in the world, known as 'the Giant of Africa' – in particular. A great tradition of storytelling (and now film-making – as in Nollywood) and art (the extraordinary and beautiful Benin bronzes) Nigeria has over 500 different ethnic groups, the first African Nobel Prize for literature and a history as ancient and varied as its civilisation.
ER Books is proud to publish AFRICA HOT: West African Stories of Sex and Love, the collected short fiction of Nigerian author Nnenna Marcia. Marcia's is a strong and vibrant new voice to emerge in African literature. Her observations of West African life are sharp and highly evocative, and for one who writes of sex, grand passion and love, her style is refreshingly cool and understated.
