Dianah Ninsiima Reviews African Love Stories: An Anthology by Ama Ata Aidoo

African Love Stories: An AnthologyVerdict: carrot

Love stories from Africa? This must be interesting! That’s what I thought when I first saw this book. Published in 2006, and edited by Ama Ata Aidoo, African Love Stories: An Anthology is a collection of great stories written by Africa’s best female authors- perhaps only female because women make better love-story writers?

As with most anthologies where various authors have contributed, the style of writing, mood, and reactions one experiences when reading this book do tend to vary as one reads one story after another.
