If you enjoyed Achebe's novel, then you'll certainly find these 'unputdownable':
Elechi Amadi - The Concubine
Mongo Beti - Mission to Kala
Ayi Kwei Armah - Two Thousand Seasons
Buchi Emecheta - The Joys of Motherhood

I don't know much about African literature, but I have read a good one. I suggest you to read "The Famished Road" written by Ben Okri. It's a long story yet so beautifully written and I really enjoyed the book. Happy reading!Source(s): I own "The Famished Road"

You might possibly enjoy the 'No 1 ladies Detective Agency' series by Alexander macCall Smith. They are not written by an AFrican, but they are set in Botswana, and give a wonderfuly vivid description of Botswana life and culture.
