The Newlywed's Window is a collection of twelve stories from emerging African writers. There is not a particular theme, every story is different for example a serial killer stalking victims and a girl looking for her father.
The writers are thoughtful and stories are written beautifully, some stories are more engaging to me than others. The scenery and descriptions of the countries are striking and intriguing.
The synopsis from Goodreads: Africa’s stories have largely been relegated to themes of poverty, and war; yet there is so much more brilliance, texture, and layers to our stories. This collection seeks to provide a platform for the rest of the world to become acquainted with the excellence of talent outside of the mainstream, as well as tell our stories from fresh vantage points.
