E-Book: Kenkey For Ewes And Other Very Short Stories

This anthology contains 25 new stories, and 25 ‘old’ stories, which we consider to be some of the best published on the flashfictionghana.com blog. Thus, this anthology is in many ways a natural outgrowth of the work already being done on the blog. These stories carry the spirit with which FlashFictionGhana was born; to use this convenient genre as a way of bringing to life the Ghanaian experience in all its varied facets.

These stories represent the budding creative spirit of the current generation of young Ghanaian writers. These new voices have become the refreshing perspective from which to consider the Ghanaian narrative in a thousand or less words.

Happy reading!

Kenkey For Ewes: And Other Very Short Stories

Like a basket full of coloured beads, like a kente strip of many colours, like a xylophone that produces a thousand vibrant sounds, this collection is made up of stories as varied as the diversity represented in Ghana, from Hohoe to Hamle.

These stories represent the budding creative spirit of the current generation of young Ghanaian writers. These new voices have become the refreshing perspective from which to consider the Ghanaian narrative in a thousand words. Or less.

This is an anthology of hope. Never have so many young people captured the stories of our time the way this army of writers have immortalised. But beyond the greatness in the stories, Kenkey for Ewes guarantees one thrilling fact: it is a great time to be a global citizen.

The Kaya-Girl

2012 First Place Burt Award for African Young Adult Literature Finalist

“I’m Abena,” I said in Twi.

“I’m Faiza,” she said in a language I would soon find out was called Dagbanli.”

An accidental meeting in Accra’s bustling Makola market makes an impact that is to affect the destinies of two extraordinary young women. For Abena, the open-minded girl from a comfortable family, the meeting is an opportunity to learn about the culture of the other girl and to appreciate the dignity that we often fail to see in the lives of the underprivileged of our country. For Faiza, the eponymous Kaya girl, the encounter with the richer girl is to provide a joyful adventure in her otherwise harsh existence and provided the inspiration that will transform her life.

The Kaya-Girl is a wonderful story, told with warm humor, about two young and confident people from vastly different Ghanaian worlds.
