      That s African writing in English of course, which I guess is the shoddy excuse for the number of white guy authors This is the first Caine Prize book I ve read so I wonder if it s standard for South Africa to dominate Standard griping aside, the title story by white guy Ken Barris is really nifty.NoViolet Bulawayo s win seems fair to me Her story Hitting Budapest hit me too, in unexpected places I very much enjoyed a drive through Lagos with Jide Adebayo Begun in Bridge Stylistic poles are occu [...]

    2. Scott says:
      Impressive collection of stories from a variety of new African writers The first five stories are the shortlist from the 2011 Caine Prize competition also known informally as the African Booker Award , and the rest were from the Caine Prize Writers Workshop.The five Caine Prize finalists are all very strong, particularly Hitting Budapest by NoViolet Bulawayo the award winner, although the book was printed before that decision had been made Hitting Budapest tells of six underprivileged Zimbabwean [...]

      Most of the short stories were very dark and so would be inappropriate for secondary students and I just didn t find them enjoyable There was one gem in the midst though, In the Spirit of McPhineas Lata, very funny and very African.

    4. Patricia Waithera says:
      It has interesting stories with unexpected twists and moral lessons I esp Enjoyed Wolf Blue and Molly s Secret Short stores are great for a quick enjoyable read.

      To See The Mountain, and other stories.Unless I ve misunderstood, this is a book of two parts the first is the five shortlisted stories for the Caine Prize 2011, and the second are the resultant twelve stories from the 2011 Caine Writers Workshop separate from the prize, I m assuming.Frankly, I would have preferred stories from the longlisted prize submissions The quality of the shortlisted work seemed so much better than the workshop ones, as, I suppose, you might expect Also it didn t help th [...]

    7. Juliet says:
      Finally 3 years later, I read this collection Loved most of the stories A couple of the Workshop stories left me puzzled, not because the quality was below par but because I may have been a little slow to grasp the plotline Or I was looking for plotlines where none were meant to be Enjoyed the read in two sittings That means something.Looking forward to rereading the 2014 Collection once it is published in print
