    1. The book is a collection of short stories born from The Caine Prize for African Writing 2017, featuring talented writers from Africa and the African diaspora The collection is rich with African culture, transporting the reader to a land humming with the mythical and beautiful Superstitions thread through everyday life like modern fairy tales, forbidden love leaves your heart hurting and God is loved, cursed and celebrated.The collection opens with Who Will Greet You At Home, a mysterious tale Th [...]


    2. I had very high hopes for this book While the first few stories are engaging, I quickly became bored with this I found myself skipping past stories when the first few paragraphs were dull or completely un engaging.This is pretty standard, in my opinion Most short story collections have a few big winners and a majority are fairly middle ground Good writing, but they are story winners meaning they mostly fit a judge s opinion of what a winning story should look like for that contest not ne I had v [...]


    3. Overall, I liked this short story anthology comprising 16 stories 5 of them had been shortlisted for the Caine Prize of 2017 and the rest had emerged from the Caine Prize African writers workshop There was a mix of really good stories from around the content like the horror story Bush Baby, the queer themed God s Children are Little Broken Things, and the creepy Shells.I literally couldn t get through one story, An Unperson Stands on the Cracked Pavement Contemplating Bei [...]


    4. This was an okay collection of short stories I loved a few, liked some and gritted my teeth through others My favourite was Shells the story got my attention from the first line and held it until the last I also enjoyed the heart wrenching God s Children and Bush Baby, which reminded me of Nollywood horror films of the late 90s I wish someone would explain to me what Tendai Huchu s An Unperson is all about though I ve never been as confused by a story before


    5. Supernatural elements show up in a few of the stories, as well as the clash between tradition and modernity Both my favorites are from the workshop Favorites Shells Lesley Nneka Arimah Nigeria That Little House in the Village Zaka Riwa Tanzania


    6. I think the best among these was Bush baby by Chikodili Emelumadu Some are quite depressing Do not read this if you are looking for sunny happy endings.
