When The Sun Sleeps – folktales from Africa

From the tales of magic and superhuman prowess of the Egyptian hero to the highly believable anthropomorphic tales told across the continent, these stories demonstrate the culture, traditions, beliefs, fantasies, and aspirations of the many nations. They also reflect on the evolution of the folktale – how a tale thought to come from a specific community appears in the folklore of another, several thousand miles away, with localized characters, and it becomes impossible to determine the true origin of the story.

All the stories in this book belong to me. Some of them are newly created, some are my versions of the stories heard and read from childhood, retold in my own voice as the current state of the folktale.
