Sefi Atta is a master storyteller and griot. The short story collection News from Home is the commencement of a new genre of storytelling which does not adhere to the traditional British canon. There is the distinct genre of the African novel, and now there is the distinct genre of the African short story. Sefi Atta abides in two worlds. The stories of the women in her works relate the conflicting experiences and roles of African women at home and in America. This may result from the fact that the author, Atta, is Bi-Continental in the truest sense of the term. She has a physical residence in Mississippi, but she retains her psychological residency in Nigeria.
I have more in common with Lukmon. He has an odd sense of humour, he is a stay-at-home parent and he loves books. Hopefully, writing from a male perspective will stop people from asking why I write from a female one. However, being a woman does influence my views and behavior, as does my background in general, so I do not agree with every opinion Lukmon holds, or approve of everything he says and does in the novel. He experiences what it is like to stay at home and raise kids for a short while, and he does not handle family tensions in ways that I would. In addition, the novel follows him in his first two years in the United States, and I have lived here for twenty-eight years. Consequently, I understand more about race relations here than he does.
Some may argue that these mental vacillations seem to result in a protracted sense of liminality, alienation, ambivalence, and unrootedness common in diasporic African literature, whereby the African immigrant does not belong to the white nor black American divide of racism and yet must negotiate the two racial divides if they must continue to extricate themselves from the postcolonial marginality and effects of tribalism they left behind in Nigeria. How do you harness these racial and tribal tropes and their attendant contradictions in relation to how they inaugurate a sense of homelessness in your writing? 2b1af7f3a8
