    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!

    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.
