African Love Stories at the CTBF

Sindiwe Magona, Antjie Krog, Elinor Sisulu and Becky Nana Ayebia Clarke

Nana Becky Ayebia Clarke has compiled many anthologies about women, abuse and war, but African Love Stories is her first publication on women and love.

African Love Stories“I have always wanted to publish a book about love from women’s perspective,” Clarke said at the Cape Town Book Fair in conversation with some of the book’s contributors – Elinor Sisulu, Antjie Krog and Sindiwe Magona. The media often focuses on catastrophes in Africa. “Love is a dimension of Africa that is often hidden.”

Quote of the hour: “Love in Africa is also political.” -Antjie Krog
