- Margaret Laurence is best known for her fiction set in Canada. Less well known is the work that resulted from the years she spent in Africa. Northern Somaliland in particular stimulated the deep understanding of human nature that permeates Laurence's subsequent work. Fiona Sparrow's in-depth study examines the foundations of Laurence's African writing, as well as Laurence's personal experiences in West Africa.
DR. FIONA SPARROW has travelled widely in West and Central Africa between studies at Oxford and the University of Toronto. She currently resides in Zagreb, Croatia.
