Novels of Botswana in English, 1930-2006

by Mary S. Lederer

Mary Lederer provides a valuable critical/historical survey of the genesis and development of the English novel in Botswana. This book comes as a timely correction of the notion that Botswana has no sustained fiction written in English, thus filling a gap that has existed for a long time in the literature of that country.

Reviews

"Mary Lederer’s current study [Novels of Botswana in English…] goes beyond its declared intention as an “introductory survey” of the subject. It is substantive, thorough and lucid. For its depth and originality it is a necessary and worthwhile companion to a significant and emerging topic."

Jack Mapanje, visiting professor, York St John University, UK
