African Folktales by Roger D Abrahams

African folktales are born from performance. They are not static stories frozen on a page with neat ‘happily-ever-after’ endings. Instead each storyteller brings their own perspective and personality to a tale – deliberately inviting discussion, argument and debate from their audience. Selected by acclaimed folklorist Roger D. Abrahams, the 90 stories in this collection feature tales from across the African continent. In his retellings, Abrahams has sought to preserve the individual voice of each storyteller; the result is an essential collection that showcases the remarkable vitality and diversity of African folktales. This superb anthology includes classic trickster tales like ‘Spider Outwits the Rich Woman’, and stories about navigating the complexities of life, such as ‘Never Ask Me About My Family’.
