9780956240194: Diplomatic Pounds and Other Stories

Ama Ata Aidoo is an iconic African woman writer who has inspired generations of black and other writers in Africa and internationally and this collection affirms why she is respected as one of the most important voices in African women’s writing. Her latest collection brings together diverse themes that speak to the relationship between Africa and its Diasporas in terms of home and exile and a sense of belonging and alienation. The stories celebrate the intricacies of friendships and love and examine the complexities involved in African Diaspora connections engaging with a sense of anomie and fragmentation as a consequence of living across different cultures – Africa and the West. Aidoo reveals her interest in presenting common human frailties.

About the Author:

Ama Ata Aidoo’s literary career dates from when, as an undergraduate, she wrote her first play, The Dilemma Of A Ghost (1964), which was subsequently produced, performed and published. She followed that up with Anowa (drama 1970). Since then, she has published novels, including Changes (1991), volumes of poetry and short stories including An Angry Letter In January & Other Poems (1992) and The Girl Who Can & Other Stories (1997). Her third collection of short stories Diplomatic Pounds & Other Stories was published in 2012 by Ayebia. She also edited the widelyacclaimed African Love Stories Anthology, published by Ayebia (2006). Her books for children include Birds & Other Poems (2002). Aidoo has taught at colleges and universities in Ghana and the United States including the University of Cape Coast and Brown University. She currently lives in Ghana and is the Executive Director of Mbaasem, a foundation she founded to promote the work of Ghanaian and African women writers.
