"In the fictional country of Bauya three adolescent boys of very different backgrounds form a firm friendship, convinced that nothing could break the ties that bind them. Their loyalties are put to the test by their emerging sexuality and by the prejudices they encounter when they leave Africa for Europe." "In this coming-of-age novel Maddy vividly exposes the imperial legacy and its effects on the lives of the rich and the poor, Africans and Europeans, heterosexuals and homosexuals."--BOOK JACKET.

Neo-imperialism in children's literature about Africa : a study of contemporary fiction by Yulisa Amadu Maddy( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the spirit of their last collaboration, Apartheid and Racism in South African Children's Literature, 1985-1995, Yulisa Amadu Maddy and Donnarae MacCann once again come together to expose the neo-imperialist overtones of contemporary children's fiction about Africa. Examining the portrayal of African social customs, religious philosophies, and political structures in fiction for young people, Maddy and MacCann reveal the Western biases that often infuse stories by well-known Western authors." "In the book's introductory section, Maddy and MacCann offer historical information concerning Western notions of Africa as "primitive," and then present background information about the complexity of feminism in Africa and about the ongoing institutionalization of racism. The main body of the study contains critiques of the novels or short stories of eleven well-known writers, including Isabel Allende and Nancy Farmer--all demonstrating that children's literature continues to misrepresent conditions and social relations in Africa. The study concludes with a look at those short stories of Beverley Naidoo which bring insight and historical accuracy to South African conflicts and emerging solutions. Educators, literature professors, publishers, professors of Diaspora and African studies, and students of the mass media will find Maddy and MacCann's critique of racism in the representation of Africa to be indispensable."--BOOK JACKET
