"Contending that Armah makes a significant and valuable contribution to the problems of writing "outside the prison-house of conventional English," Ogede situates Armah's writing within its cultural, historical and political contexts and examines Armah's ability to create new literary forms based on his masterful manipulation of African oral traditons. Armah is presented here as a writer who looks beyond the corruption that would seem to have engulfed Africa and who successfully bridges the concerns of first- and second-generation postcolonial African writers."--BOOK JACKET." ;
