Pan Macmillan to represent Cassava Republic in South Africa

Pan Macmillan South Africa is delighted to announce that as of July 2016 the company will represent Cassava Republic Press in South Africa.


Cassava Republic Press is a leading African publishing house and their list comprises an eclectic list of quality literary fiction, non-fiction, crime, young adult fiction, children’s books, and romantic fiction under the Ankara Press imprint. The publisher aims to spotlight the vibrancy and diversity of prose by African writers on the continent and in the Diaspora.


Their 2016 fiction list includes Elnathan John’s breathtakingly beautiful Born on a Tuesday which tackles unexplored aspects of friendship, love, trauma and politics in recent Northern Nigerian history; Sarah Ladipo Manyika’s mesmerising Like A Mule Bringing Ice Cream to the Sun, a subtle story about ageing, friendship and loss and the erotic yearnings of an older woman; the crime novel Easy Motion Tourist by Leye Adenle and Abubakar Adam Ibrahim’s Season of Crimson Blossoms, a controversial and gripping story of an affair between a devoted Muslim grandmother and a 25-year-old drug dealer and political thug.


Cassava Republic Press has headquarters in Abuja, Nigeria with a second base in London. Since its founding ten years ago in Nigeria, it has become a dynamic and truly international publishing house that Pan Macmillan South Africa is proud to represent.
