West African Literatures provides students with fresh, in-depth perspectives on the key debates in the field. The aim of this book is not to provide an authoritative, encyclopedic account, but to consider a selection of the region's literatures in relation to prevailing discussions about literature and postcolonialism.

Stephanie Newell is Reader in English Literature at the University of Sussex. Her research interests include West African literature, African newspaper culture, African readerships, and postcolonial theory. She has published widely on African popular culture and West African newspaper history. Her most recent books include two studies of West African popular literature and a queer history of colonial West Africa, The Forger's Tale: The Search for 'Odeziaku'.Review:
The first books in this series are exemplary. Newell, Patke, and Keown all achieve the difficult task of combining accessible, wide-ranging and authoritative introductions to particular areas and genres with new perspectives and fresh insights into specific texts. I found them remarkably readable and rewarding. * Lyn Innes, Professor Emerita, University of Kent *
