Bearing Witness:
Readers, Writers, and the Novel in Nigeria
Wendy Griswold

Book Description | Table of Contents

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"This is a major project that will confirm Wendy Griswold's status as one of the premier sociologists of literature working today. It is singular in the way it systematizes and enriches our understanding of the context in which literature is produced and how context shapes the content of the work. That Griswold does this for Africa is even more remarkable.... That Nigeria is the most populous African country with one of the most lively literary cultures makes the book even more significant for our understanding of intellectual production in cultural peripheries. This topic is likely to become increasingly important as we become more aware of the impact of globalization processes on national cultures."--Michèle Lamont, Princeton University
