How popular are writings about Africa here?


I'm passionte about Africa and write articles, essays and books about the countries and people of the continent. I wrote a novel based on the true story of a Kenyan family who was disastrosly affected by the 1998 terrorist bombigsin Nairobi and Dar es Salaam. My editor t the publishing house that had published my first novel rejected the MSS with th remarks, "Books about Africa and Africans do not sell unless there's a European, preferably female, involved in the story." Woow!! Wish I had such hegemonic delusions!
