Monica Arac de Nyeko Wins “African Booker”

“Known as the African Booker, the annual Caine prize is awarded to a short story published in English by an African writer whose work has reflected African sensibilities. It is the second time that Arac de Nyeko has been in the running for the award, after she was shortlisted in 2004 for her short story Strange Fruit. That year Brian Chikwava from Zimbabwe won with Seventh Street Alchemy.”
