About all african books
We prefer to identify All African Books as more of a word art gallery. Literature is an art, using words to express, educate, entertain, letting readers apply their own imagination. This craft allows the audience to connect with both the writer and the characters within the book. Whether fictional or not, writing lets readers lose themselves in the story, letting their imagination run wild, creating their own unique universe.
Joyce Carol Oates puts it best, “Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another’s skin, another’s voice, another’s soul.”
Africans are gifted with the art of story-telling. Book stores such as ours, are platforms that will enable writers to impart, to communicate truths and information based on or about Africa.
We are independent, catering for a niche market looking to buy and support African Literature. At the moment we are relying on major publishers for books to sell but hope ultimately to form profitable and lasting relationships with independent publishers/authors.
There is a visible growing interest in contemporary African Literature, finally more and more writers are given the deserved recognition by the literary critics. Finally Africa has more than one story to tell.
So have a cup of coffee, tea or better yet have a glass of wine and enjoy the vast amount of talented authors at All African Books. And if you can’t find what you’re looking for, lets us know and we’ll see what we can do!
