"I Do Not Come to You by Chance" by Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani is interesting and topical. It brings to light the murky world of cybercrime and "419 scams". Entertaining and thought provoking, this modern tale of contemporary Nigeria evokes the life of Kingsley, a brilliant young man promised a bright future, but eventually drawn to the dirty world of Internet fraud because he cannot get a job and so, finds himself unable to help his ailing father in his hour of need... Full review of the book.

This site proposes an overview of works by female African authors writing in French and others closely associated with Sub-Saharan Africa. It provides an opportunity to find out more about the authors' life and interests and to get acquainted with their novels, short stories, plays and poetry.
This overview of texts written by women writers of African origin and others who have a close relationship with Africa, is sponsored by The School of Humanities at The University of Western Australia, Perth, Australia. This project has been made possible thanks to the support provided by the women writers mentioned in this website, the Australian Research Council (ARC), the journal Amina and innumerable colleagues and collaborators.
