Great to see a book that takes Anglophone literature out of the shadows. But this is not a one-way street. Maybe it is time for Cameroonians, particularly Anglophone Cameroonians, to start promoting their own literature. This morning, I stumbled across an announcement about a forthcoming collection of 23 short stories that included African literary giants such as Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Among that prestigious list was an Anglophone Cameroonian called Dipita Kwa, whom I have never heard about but who was good enough to appear on such an August collection. So what explains this situation? lack of promotion at home leading to writers to look for recognition beyond Cameroon's borders.

The collection of short stories in question is "One World: A global anthology of short stories" edited by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Jhumpa Lahiri:
