As the new year begins, TIA’s contributor Bwesigye Bwa Mwesigire takes us through a list of the most outstanding books released in 2015.
2015 has been another good year for African literature as a number of outstanding books hit the shelves this year. The year has not, however, seen a large number of highly anticipated books in the way the year 2013 did – NoViolet Bulawayo’s debut novel, We Need New Names (May 2013); Taiye Selasi’s debut Ghana Must Go (March 2013); and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Americanah (May 2013) all came out that year.
