Haywards Heath

Forna, A (2012) 'Haywards Heath.' In: Habila, H, ed. The Granta book of the African short story. Granta, London. ISBN 9781847083333


Presenting a diverse and dazzling collection from all over the continent - from Morocco to Zimbabwe, Uganda to Kenya - Helon Habila focuses on younger, newer writers - contrasted with some of their older, more established peers - to give a fascinating picture of a new and more liberated Africa. These writers are characterized by their engagement with the wider world and the opportunities offered by the end of apartheid, the end of civil wars and dictatorships, and the possibilities of free movement around the world. Their work is inspired by travel and exile. They are liberated, global and expansive.
