Short Fiction at New Yorker

Mallam Sile by Mohammed Naseehu Ali

Set in the Ghanian city of Kumasi, this is a delightful story of a man, Mallam Sile, at peace with himself and his world. Except at forty-six, he’s still a virgin. The story chronicles, among other things, his quest for a wife. Ali gives us exceptional detail of an African Muslim community and the relationships between men and women.

Also recomended, same author, The Manhood Test.
