GodsandSoldiersI just received my copy of Gods and Soldiers: The Penguin Anthology of Contemporary African Writing. Edited by Rob Spillman of Tin House, this collection promises to “capture the energy, vitality, and immediacy of the continent today.” I’m just basically thrilled about this one because it gives readers an opportunity to “sample” a number of  African writers’ works in one collection.  The Anthology includes writings from the well-known like Chinua Achebe, Chimamanda Adichie, and the less- known — Yvonne Vera, E. C. Osondu.
