Olufemi Terry

Stickfighting Days took the literary world by storm in mid-2010 when it won the Caine Prize for African Writing. It is about glue-sniffing street kids who pass the time duelling with sticks. The young Sierra Leonean writer claimed this to be only his second short story.

Terry published another story, Digitalis Lust in Jambula Tree, the Caine Prize’s 8th annual collection. He is currently working on his debut novel The Sum of All Losses.
