Any mention of Cameroon literature will bring to mind names such as Mongo Beti, Ferdinand Oyono and René Philombe. Cameroonians writing in English are, to a large extent, still unknown both within and outside of their national territory. Cameroon literature in English has come of age and deserves to be given serious attention by scholars to move to the centre of critical discussions of the New English Literatures.

The essays in this collection are divided into three sections: narrating the nation, gender representations and cultural encounters and cast a refreshing and original glance on fictional and dramatic literature in Cameroon in English.
