      A first reads giveaway(thank you). A unique collection of short stories from The African Continent. Written by various authors, they give an intimate look at life in the raw through each character's story.There is sadness, brutality, and also humour. I really loved some of the stories ,such as African Violet, The Verge, and Table Manners, but each of them has their own merit. It wouldn't be my normal choice of book but it made a refreshing change and I did enjoy it.

Very good. 4*Love on Trial - on homosexuals in Malawi; [...]
