Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

A new edition of her classic novel to coincide with the publication of her other works in the African Writers Series. Nnu Ego is a woman devoted to her children, giving them all her energy, all her worldly possessions, indeed, all her life to them -- with the result that she finds herself friendless and alone in middle age. This story of a young mother's struggles in 1950s Lagos is a powerful commentary on polygamy, patriarchy, and women's changing roles in urban Nigeria.


Review:
Nnu Ego is a woman who gives all her energy, money and everything she has to raising her children - leaving her little time to make friends.
