Sudanese Novels Through Time

🇸🇸 South Sudan

🇸🇩 Sudan

“Recommendations for Sudanese novels in English often focus on mid-century Sudan on the cusp of independence. Instead, I wanted to present a short reading list that incorporated male and female perspectives of Sudan throughout different points in time, both from northern and southern Sudanese perspectives. This list is by no means comprehensive - I wanted it to hint at all that remains untranslated from the Sudanese literary scene, and at those writers who are usually unheard abroad.” ~ Razan Idris, Sudanese American writer, curator of the #SudanSyllabus, and PhD student in History.
