I'm going to Tanzania this fall and I'm looking forward to getting to know the Tanzanian culture a bit better by reading novels about/from the country or/and by Tanzanian authors. 
I'm surprised that I can't find any useful information about it - my prejudice country tend to mark all literature from any sub-saharan country as "African literature", and authors from South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya are strongly favorered. 

Can you help me finding some fantastic novels from Tanzania?
