Waiting for an angel: Refashioning the African writing self
by Edoro, Ainehi, M.A., University of Kansas, 2008, 72; 1467931
Abstract (Summary)

Using Helon Habila's Waiting for an Angel, the author argues that third generation Nigerian writers, compared to their post-independence literary forbears, articulate a more refined representation of the artist as a social entity and of writing as a collective process precisely because they do not take the social function of African writers and writings for granted.
