African Violet: "For the beach or for the stocking."

The 2012 Caine Prize anthology African Violet has been featured on page one of WANTED Magazine's 6-page book supplement (December edition). 

"African Violet and Other Stories showcases the Caine Prize for African Writing's five shortlisted stories for 2012. The stories are diverse, veering away from the war torn, poverty stricken image of Africa. Characters have iPhones and iPads, are entangled in complicated relationships, create their own republics and even hoodwink their bosses while in the middle of a three-day bender."

We're delighted that WANTED have recommended this year's anthology as a must buy for the 'beach or for the stocking.' African Violet, as well as all the other Caine Prize anthologies, are available to buy here.
