Translator, Vera Leckie, at the Centre for African Studies (CALS)


Vera Leckie is currently working at CALS on the proofs of her translation of the work of  West African author,  Boubacar Boris Diop. The book is  L’Afrique au-dela du Miroir  (Africa beyond the Mirror) (2007) and it has been translated into English from French. The translation is to be published by Ayebia Publishing in the United Kingdom. The book is an interesting and well-written compilation of essays and newspaper articles. Leckie hopes that publication of a second translated work of Diop’s which she has submitted, Les petits de la guenon (The Monkey and her Children) (or Doomi Golo in Wolof 2009,  will follow.
