Coming at a time when Africa and African writers are in the midst of a remarkable renaissance, "Gods and Soldiers" captures the vitality and urgency of African writing today. With stories from northern Arabic-speaking to southern Zulu-speaking writers, this collection conveys thirty different ways of approaching what it means to be African. Whether about life in the new urban melting pots of Cape Town and Luanda, or amid the battlefield chaos of Zimbabwe and Somalia, or set in the imaginary surreal landscapes born out of the oral storytelling tradition, these stories represent a striking cross section of extraordinary writing. Including works by J M Coetzee, Chimamanda Adichie, Nuruddin Farah, Binyavanga Wainaina and Chinua Achebe, "Gods and Soldiers" features many pieces never before published, making it a vibrant and essential glimpse of Africa as it enters the twenty-first century.
