Cover illustration bt Jane Human. 0435909517. keywords: Literature Africa Black Women Cameroon Translated. inventory # 35907. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Nineteen-year-old Ateba lives in a slum neighbourhood in the African city of Awu. Abandoned by her prostitute mother, Ateba lodges with her aunt. Caught between the expectations of her aunt, who seeks a high bride-price for her, and the violent threats of her suitor, Ateba begins to lose her fragile hold on sanity. This shocking novel deconstructs the illusions about African women which négritude literature has produced. Beyala gives a voice to those who have learnt the emotional and psychological effects of life in the African ghetto.
