Been meaning to add this here:
From a blog I follow: semper aliquid novi africam adferre, – a post with A link to an article from The Guardian listing new fiction from Ethiopia.
Two novels and a memoir – all three set in 20th Century Ethiopia from the late 1950s through late 1970s.
I know it’s a stretch to call it “historical” fiction, but so much has changed since these events, what could be better than fiction written by the people who lived through the period?
Also, at the bottom of that Guardian article – you can find links to other non-western Algeria, Sudan, Haiti and China.
Clicking those links will bring you to yet other lists, many of them including historical fiction offerings.
