A feminist literary classic by one of Africa’s greatest women writers, re-issued with a new introduction by Stéphane Robolin.

First published in 1979, The Joys of Motherhood is the story of Nnu Ego, a Nigerian woman struggling in a patriarchal society. Unable to conceive in her first marriage, Nnu is banished to Lagos where she succeeds in becoming a mother. Then, against the backdrop of World War II, Nnu must fiercely protect herself and her children when she is abandoned by her husband and her people. Emecheta “writes with subtlety, power, and abundant compassion” (New York Times).

A good read. The only "flaw" in this book is that the print is too small, even for those of us who wear glasses.

It was sent to bookfrogster for the wish list tag game on the 30th of September. I'm really sorry for the delay.

This was such a good book, although really sad in places because of the struggles Nnu Ego goes through. Thank you for sharing this one.

I thought this looked familiar and searching back I see I read it back in 2016 - I think I’ll reread it though! Thank you!
