About the Author:

Born of Ibo parents in Nigeria, Buchi Emecheta is widely known for her multilayered stories of black women struggling to maintain their identity and construct viable lives for themselves and their families. She writes, according to The New York Times, with "subtlety, power, and abundant compassion." Her numerous novels include The Slave Girl, The Family, Bride Price, and The Joys of Motherhood.


"Miss Emecheta's prose has a shimmer of originality, of English being reinvented. . . . Issues of survival lie inherent in her material and give her tales weight."
