If you've never read a writer from that part of Africa, Veronique Tadjo is a good start..
She's the result of the union btw a French mother and a father from Ivory Coast..
Being as free as a bird, travelling through various African countries are natural things to do for her..
She's passionate about black history and have a doctorate degree in the matter..
She's a very complex ecrivaine , in the few artists I've read about her the interviewers seem to always have a hard time to define her or to close her in a social box ..she refuses!
Her books relate parts of our history, the social challenges that we encounter in our men/women relationship, the feeling of equality, the gap btw generations, chaos, despair, Rwandan crisis ect...

Some of her book titles are:
  • Reine Pokou
  • L'ombre d'Imana
  • Champs de bataille et d'amour

Here's a great interview:
Here's her webbie:

Djaa we have great ecrivains from Ivory Coast:)
Eyee Wayee:)
