African Lives, a pioneering anthology of memoirs and autobiographical writings, lets the people of Africa speak for themselves-telling stories of struggle and achievement that have the authenticity of lived experience.

The anthology presents selections from the work of many of Africa's finest writers and most significant personalities from across the continent and spanning several centuries. Enhancing the material, Geoff Wisner's introduction and biographical notes provide important context for the selections and also highlight the challenges that African memoirs pose to the preconceptions of Western readers. The result is a book that is both an absorbing read and a valuable resource for courses on Africa.
