"I think writers in the West have only just started to explore the possibilities of memoirs. I think itís simply a matter of letting writers in Africa know about the possibilities of this genre. Itís very creative and intellectual; it still takes all your skills as a writer. Perhaps, even more Ė to hold your readerís attention. You canít be lazy about it because itís true."

 ~ Aminatta Forna,
