ABSTRACT
The chapter presents a conclusion to the book "The African Novel & the Modernist Tradition." Thirteen novels by British, American and African writers are described in the book with the aim of allowing them to illuminate one another and the modernist's handling of point of view is used as an instrument to achieve this aim. The book tries to show that a profound interaction and appropriation has taken place and the African novelist deserves to be read more seriously as an artist who is accessible to readers.
