share on Facebook share on Twitter share on Google+ share on Pinterest

Aaron Bady, who compiled this list for The Literary Hub, is a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Texas, teaching African literature. Aaron’s list should serve as a great introduction to contemporary African writers. Some of the writers, like Nigerian writer Chris Abani, have already earned a great deal of acclaim in the United States, while others remain relatively obscure here. In any event, we’ve confident you’ll discover a book you will really enjoy.

Also check out our list of 25 African women writers, and our list of 25 African male writers you should read.
