In the Sands of Time is a culmination of some of the brilliant stories received for the inaugural Toyin Falola Prize. A total of 34 power-packed narratives render a broad range of African youths’ perception of their continent and how they can relate to it in creative form.
“These stories delightfully bring the diverse experience of being African in contemporary times quite close.”
Abimbola Adelakun, author of Under the Brown Rusted Roofs
“Thanks to the Toyin Falola Prize for uplifting the voices of these talented authors who have written diverse and fascinating stories that come with a lot of soul. These stories will take you on a journey of laughter and sorrow, of power and surrender, and pleasure and pain. A timely and utterly ravishing collection, this anthology is the gift we need now more than ever.”
Ukamaka Olisakwe, author of Ogadinma
“Ensnaring, seductive, and deep. This collection is nothing less than a kaleidoscope of the narrative genius of young contemporary African storytellers.”
