No Edges: Swahili Stories
The first collection of Swahili fiction in English translation, No Edges introduces eight East African writers from Tanzania and Kenya as they share tales of sorcerers, Nairobi junkyards, cross-country bus rides, and spaceships that blast prisoners into eternity. Here we’re encouraged to explore the chaos of life on a crowded Earth, as well as the otherworldly realms lying just beyond our reach. Through language bursting with rhythm and vivid Africanfuturist visions, these writers summon the boundless future into being.
“An absorbing sampler of the literary feast available in Africa’s most widely-spoken language, No Edges should leave readers eager to discover more Swahili writers.” —Shailja Patel, author of Migritude
“A literary gem glued together by an intricate alchemy between master and apprentice, with exciting contemporary voices from the East African coast speaking to a global audience. A must read.” —Abdulrahman ‘Abu Amirah’ Ndegwa, Curator, Swahili Lit Fest
