Book Announcement: The Tongue-Tied Imagination: Decolonizing Literary Modernity in Senegal

Dear colleagues,

I would like to announce the publication of my book The Tongue-Tied Imagination: Decolonizing Literary Modernity in Senegal, just out from Fordham University Press. 

Here is a brief description from the catalogue:

New book on the History of Borno in Nigeria (Un manguier au Nigeria : histoires du Borno)

Dear H-Africa subscribers,

Just a message to let you know that I have just published a new book on the history of Borno in North-Eastern Nigeria. The book could have been called 'Beyond Boko Haram' but I have decided to call it 'Un manguier au Nigeria : histoires du Borno'. As you can tell, the book is in French and was published by Plon in the 'Terre Humaine' series. It retraces the history of Borno through interviews with inhabitants of the region.

Best Wishes,
