The question in the title above is prompted by my being invited to review the recently published 251-page Columbia Guide to South African Literature in English since 1945 (2010), by Gareth Cornwell, Dirk Klopper and Craig MacKenzie. It is a guide that follows closely on another guide, the A-Z of African Writers: A Guide to Modern African Writing in English (2009), compiled by Robin Malan, and draws upon several earlier sources including the Companion to South African English Literature (Adey et al. 1986) and the extensive files of the National English Literary Museum (NELM).
