The Crisis in African Publishing

Jeremy Weate’s blog may be of interest, re his view on the crisis in the marketing of African writing. It’s to be found at http://blogs.african-writing.com/blog/archives/299

It’s not only the details of the global market, but also the role/profile given to the African (and more widely the Postcolonial) writer within this market. Two interesting books in the last decade: Graham Huggan’s ‘The Post-Colonial Exotic: Marketing the Margins’ (Routledge, 2001) and Sarah Brouillette’s  ’Postcolonial Writers in the Global Literary Marketplace’ (Palgrave, 2007).
