About this title

Synopsis:

This volume explores the recurring theme of exile in African literature, both as physical and mental alienation.

From the Back Cover:

Aparthoid was one of the most oppressive, but by no moans the only regime to drive African writers into what Eldred Jones calls 'the disorientating hut sometimes mentally productive state of exile'. Buchi Emecheta recently acknowledged that she probably would not have written if she had not been thrown upon her own resources in South London. Bessie Head escaped from her past in South Africa and was met with the difficulties of getting citizenship in Botswana. Ayi Kwei Armah tried Dakar, New York and Dar es Salaam. This volume explores the recurring theme of exile in African literature, both as physical and mental alienation.
