A Ghanaian explores the increasing influence of China across the region, a Kenyan student activist writes of exile in Kampala, a Liberian scientist shares her diary of the Ebola crisis, a Nigerian journalist travels to the north to meet a community at risk, a Kenyan travels to Senegal to interview a gay-rights activist, and a South African writer recounts a tale of family discord and murder in a remote seaside town. With an introductory essay by Ellah Allfrey, this anthology gathers new stories of contemporary Africa."--Publisher's website.
