Abstract:This checklist is aimed at providing a bibliographical basis for teaching and studying East African women's writing in English. It covers the literature from Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Seychelles and Somalia from the early sixties up to the present day and is divided into two major parts. Part 1 comprises a section of fiction as well as nonfiction by East African women writers; both are organized by country and within each country alphabetically by author. Part 2 contains material for further reading. The largest section lists general and specific literary criticism which also includes selected profiles and newspaper reports; subsequent sections contain book reviews, interviews, conference papers, background information, bibliographies, and periodicals. Entries are organized by author in alphabetical order.
