Women's Spaces, Women's Visions: Politics, Poetics, and Resistance in African Women's Drama
Africa World Press, 2007 - 322 pages
For Aminata Sow Fall, writing is subversive because it poses questions that need answers - she also believes that the writer's role is not to moralise, but to raise questions to which the reader may react. This book explores her unique literary creations, examining her encounters between the real and the imaginary.
