Back in Action

I have been thinking a lot about African literature–and not because I just got back from a symposium on the subject at Wellesley. I have been fortunate enough to have had conversations with many different people–fellow writers, but also critics, academics, editors, agents, publishers, booksellers–and the different perspectives seem to confirm some trends in the field that I’d like to write about someday, very soon. But first I have to stay focused on the last couple of chapters of my novel.
