This book provides a most compelling examination of the link between fictional writing and the memories of a tragedy that `cannot be encapsulated in a single narrative' (p. 158).
Pierre-Philippe Fraiture, French Studies
"Insightful, thoroughly researched, and exceptionally engaging [...] Hitchcott's Rwanda Genocide Stories offers so much in addition to the excellent literary analysis it presents. The book is replete with rich historical and contextual detail, compellingly argued and strongly interdisciplinary."
Ayala Maurer-Prager, Bulletin of Francophone Postcolonial Studies
'Nicki Hitchcott's comprehensive and beautifully structured account of fiction published in the two decades following the genocide [...] is the first book to consider the full extent of (largely ignored) Rwandan fictional writing in a sustained manner, alongside more well-known, internationally circulating texts by visitors to Rwanda.'
'The resulting work is exceptional in its range and consistent focus.'
`Throughout Rwanda Genocide Stories Hitchcott's comparisons offer ample material for insights that will set the agenda for future research.'
`For now, the critical field is significantly richer for [Hitchcott's] intervention drawing on fiction across English and French.'
Zoe Norridge, Research in African Literatures
