African literature now. Behind the scenes

August 2022

Countless stories from sub-Saharan Africa testify to its buzzing contemporary literature scene. So far this year, African authors have already won a number of important international prizes.

In our new collection, several authors from Southern Africa illuminate the reality of writing and publishing. Created in cooperation with the African Book Festival Berlin (August 26th-28th, 2022).
