Ayi Kwei Armah

Author (Ghana)

| Utne Reader September / October 2007

Armah is one of only a few Ghanaian novelists who have been published internationally since the 1960s. Based over the years in the United States, Algeria, France, Tanzania, and Senegal, he has gathered a dedicated fan base. His novel The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born burst onto the scene in 1968, to be followed by others that display his extraordinary way with prose, at once excoriating and spiritual: Two Thousand Seasons (1973), The Healers (1978), and Osiris Rising (1995).
