    One thought on “Opening Spaces: Contemporary African Women's Writing”

    1. Some of the stories are really good—well crafted and thought provoking. The rest are underwhelming, unfortunately. But they all share one positive aspect, good cultural exposition. Since many readers unfamiliar with African literature may not realise that Africa is not a homogenous country, but a massive continent containing more culture than any other place on Earth. That collection as small as this still manages to depict some of that cultural flavour is a treat.

    2. I only gave this a three star because there were a few so-so stories, but overall a fantastic collection of African Women's writing. The last story in particular is very moving, I think it's called something like "The Other Wife." Many of these authors I had never read in short story form, like Ama Ata Aidoo, so it was interesting to see them working with another medium. A quick read, but a thought provoking one.

    3. An ok collection of short stories written by women with some connection to Africa. Some a little better than the rest, others kind of boring, but mostly average and nothing exceptional.
