Memories We Lost AND OTHER STORIES This anthology brings together a variety of short stories from Africa and parts of the world. A rigorous and informed selection has ensured that it combines the confidence of The classic’s with the freshness that contemporary writers bring to their craft. This collection is a grain-store of memories that seek to entertain, provoke, empower and educate. The themes are s wide ranging as the authors’ backgrounds but they share a common belief — enhancing values and integrity in today’s society in an effort to preserve human and social dignity. The short story is probably the world’s secret weapon in the way that the oral culture is interwoven into the written text, to be enjoyed for education as well as a good read.
