Larabanga: Short Stories from the Savannah



About the book

The anthology Larbanga: Short Stories From the Savannah is a diverse, rich and very interesting collection of 22 short stories from Northern Ghana. As with most anthologies, the style and subject matter of the writers are diverse. It can be a very enriching experience to read an anthology of short stories from such a fairly large number of budding and already established Ghanaian writers with a variety of writing styles, viewpoints and socio-cultural experiences, as compared to reading a collection from a single author.

Book format: eBook


Most of the writers are able to get the right balance the balance between literary technique, story plot, and structure of narrative. The dominant themes of the stories in this anthology are the authors’ expression of the social and personal conflicts in their lives. Some of the most recurrent themes are the challenges in navigating the mysteries of love, forced marriages and child marriages, superstition, discrimination against women, dysfunctional family relationships, the challenges faced  by young graduates posted to places far from home for compulsory national service, crime and travel.
