Caine Prize 2006 Anthology

Last year, my story “The Fanatic” was shortlisted for the Caine Prize for African Writing, along with pieces by Sefi Atta, Darrel Bristow-Bovey, Muthoni Garland, and Mary Watson. The finalists’ work appears in a new anthology, titled Jungfrau and Other Short Stories, and it can be ordered from I believe the book also contains selected stories by writers who have attended the annual Caine Prize workshop, held in Kenya in mid-spring. (There’s a brief mention of this in Boyd Tonkin’s column in the Independent.)
