Product Description

Winner of the Orange Broadband Prize; National Book Critics Cricel Award finalist. The author of Purple Hibiscus has written a tremendously evocative novel of promise, hope and the disappointment of war, with effortless grace illuminating a seminal moment in African history: Biafra's struggle to establish an independent republic in southeastern Nigeria during the late 1960s. Readers experience this tumultuous decade alongside five unforgettable characters: Ugwu, a 13-year-old houseboy who works for Odenigbo, a university professor full of revolutionary zeal; Olanna, his beautiful young mistress; & Richard, a shy young Englishman infatuated with Olanna's twin sister Kainene. 541p.
