Noma Literary Prize Awarded to Were-Were Liking

Kangni Alem writes (Fr): ” The Noma Award likes African women novelists. After Mariama Ba whose classic Une si Longue Lettre [A Long Letter] obtained the prize in 1980, the jurors of this Japanese endowed prize just awarded it to ivoiro-cameroonian novelist and playwright Were-Were Liking whose reputation as an icon and a creative mind is well established.”
