The authors engaged in this book are concerned, in the main, with the whole question of the transformation of the identities of the different peoples of postcolonial Africa. Even so, it is clear that the issues they raise would resonate clearly in similar contexts in other parts of the world.
" Long Dreams in Short Chapters is a remarkable achievement, a brilliant and magisterial remapping of the African text in its literary, cultural, and political dimensions. Wumi Raji's globalist and transnational sensitivities make this book an effortless unpacking of the complexities of the African literary process. and it is with great enthusiasm that I welcome it as a landmark contribution to African thought."
