About this title

Synopsis:

"Emecheta's fluent prose...is steeped in the tradition of a difficult rural African life."―The New York Times.

An allegorical tale, in which a collision between Westerners and tribal members imperils the stoic traditionalism of the Africans.

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.
