Quick Overview

Short Story Day Africa's next anthology of innovative short fiction is set in the rooms, the passages, the bars and the lobbies of hotels across the continent, and seeks metafiction exploring Africa as a hotel herself. If these walls could talk, what story would they tell?

Paperback. 288 pages
Publisher: New Internationalist (2020)
Language: English
ISBN: 9781780265056
Size: 128cm x 194cm



For this sixth collection of stories seeking the most innovative writing emerging from the continent, we asked for stories of Africa’s hotels: grand and shabby, real and imaginary, pulsating with life and abandoned. Here, it’s not just the walls that speak (and weep); the corridors, kitchens, lobbies, bars and beds all have stories to tell. But none more so than the array of characters jostling each other across these pages: tourists, cleaners, children, beggars, honeymooners, cooks, soldiers, those travelling hopefully.

Check in to Hotel Africa to hear a chorus of irresistible voices – from Cameroon to Zambia, from Egypt to Malawi.
