The unofficial side of African fiction has captured Newell's (African studies, U. of Cambridge.) interest, the largely undocumented writing, publishing, and reading of pamphlets and paperbacks that exist outside the grid of mass production. She describes how authors in Ghana combine quotes from western texts with a vast array of local narrative sources, so that their plots, genres, and protagonists are drawn from a jamboree bag in which the foreign cannot be separated from the local. c.
