Freedom, romance, family, jealousy, death, ambition, fate ... From Kenya and China to America and Nepal, this anthology of short stories has it all!

Sampling stories from the African continent and the world over, this selection gives the reader incisive insight into a wide variety of human emotions, struggles, tragedies, and triumphs. Each of the fifteen stories has been selected for its relevance to the interest of young adults striving for a clear understanding of their increasingly complicated world.

The anthology features a wide range of styles of writing the short story from seasoned as well as up-and-coming writers. It blends contemporary issues with time-tested principles that influence human interactions with each other and nature.

Each story is followed by a thought-provoking activity to help readers reflect on the content, themes, and styles of the texts. Brief notes on the authors give the readers an understanding of the people and the situations behind the stories. Help with unfamiliar words right on the page means readers can focus on the story itself.

John Mugubi is currently Dean, School of Creative Arts, Film and Media Studies at Kenyatta University. He has publications in the areas of African drama and theatre, children’s literature and poetry. |
