Rosemary Haskell publishes review of Senegalese author’s short story collection in World Literature Today

Professor of English Rosemary Haskell's review of "De Quoi Aimer Vivre," a short-story collection by Senegalese author Fatou Diome, appeared in the January/February 2022 issue of World Literature Today.

Rosemary Haskell, professor of English, has article published in World Literature Today reviewing recent short story collection, “De Quoi Aimer Vivre” (English: Enough to Make Us Love Life) from Senegalese author Fatou Diome.

Haskell writes that the stories are generally about Diome’s favorite character types: the threshold or borderline people who strive to get a foothold in hostile or at least unwelcoming societies.

Diome has also published several novels, among them the very successful “Le Ventre de l’Atlantique” (English: The Belly of the Atlantic), which explores the precarious careers of young men from Senegal who try to succeed as soccer players on European teams.
