Abstract:This special issue focuses on southern African writing, which has not been as well represented in the journal as other literatures of Africa. Contents: The Bessie Head-Langston Hughes correspondence, 1960-1961 (David Chioni Moore); Understanding the rural-urban dichotomy in Mositi Torontle's 'The victims' and Unity Dow's 'Far and beyon'' (Botswana) (Mary S. Lederer and Nobantu L. Rasebotsa); Malawian literature after Banda and in the age of AIDS: a conversation with Steve Chimombo (Christopher J. Lee); Cosmopolitanism and social change in a Zambian thriller (Ranka Primorac on Grieve Sibale's 'Murder in the forest', 1998); A survey of the themes and techniques in Keamogetsi Joseph Molapong's poetry (Mbongeni Malaba); 'The body is his, pulse and motion': violence and desire in Yvonne Vera's 'The stone virgins' (Sofia Kostelac); Black women walking Zimbabwe: refuge and prospect in the landscapes of Yvonne Vera's 'The stone virgins' and Tsitsi Dangarembga's 'Nervous conditions' and its sequel, 'The book of not' (Lily G.N. Mabura); Living under a new tree: organic representation of a postwar future in Mia Couto's 'Under the frangipani' (Sean Rogers); Writing 'wider worlds': the role of relation in Abdulrazak Gurnah's fiction (Tina Steiner).
