Fifteen contributors from Nigerian universities write on twenty Nigerian women writers. The aim of the editors was to bring into focus the literary contribution of Nigerian women writers up to the present. The writers are grouped into four broad categories: novelists, dramatists, poets, and the children's literature writers. They include the well-known writers, such as Flora Nwapa, Buchi Emecheta and Adaora Ulasi; but also relatively unknown female writers who have contributed to the development of Nigerian literature. The book includes a short biography on each writer; a list of her publications; words about her and a critical analysis of her works.
