Contemporary African fiction is a source of dystopian urban images juxtaposed with the kinds of ‘good cities’ to which the wielders of political or economic power subscribe. This article examines the dominant representations of the ‘good city’ and how they are contested or subverted from various narrative perspectives. It focuses on inscriptions of the city in fictional narratives and on inscriptions such as street signs and place names found in cities in order to explore the tensions and the contradictions in images of urban experience in Africa.
