Long Dreams in Short Chapters

Essays in African Postcolonial Literary, Cultural and Political Criticisms

By Wumi Raji

This book is concerned with, in the main, the whole question of the transformation of the identities of the different peoples of postcolonial Africa. Even so, it is clear that the issues raised would resonate clearly in similar contexts in other parts of the world. Long Dreams in Short Chapters is a remarkable achievement, a brilliant and magisterial remapping of the African text in its literary, cultural, and political dimensions. Author Wumi Raji's globalist and transnational sensitivities make this book an effortless unpacking of the complexities of the African literary process and it is a landmark contribution to African thought.
