My African Reading Challenge List

A tentative first version of my list of books to read and review for the African Reading Challenge:

The Fate of Africa:  A History of Fifty Years of Independence by Martin Meredith
God's Bits of Wood by Sembene Ousmane (Seneghal)
Harvest of Thorns by Shimmer Chinodya (Zimbabwe)
Kicking Tongues by Karen King-Aribisala (Nigeria)
The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born by Ayi Kwei Armah (Ghana)
A Question of Power by Bessie Head (Botswana)

This list may change somewhat; there are several others I'd like to include, among them Wole Soyinka's Death and the King's Horseman and Ngugi wa Thiong'o 's A Grain of Wheat.
