'Africa is a huge continent that straddles two hemispheres, and carries a layered and complex history. In recent years there’s been an explosion in fiction by African writers, who hail from all corners of the globe, writing in English; from Kinshasa to Nairobi, and Brixton to Brooklyn. Our Book Club in 2016 offers a richly textured journey through a century of African writing; from classic novels to contemporary fiction that pushes the boundaries and will leave you wanting more.' — RN's 2016 African Book Club
