    Paperback Description:

    A Commonwealth Prize-winning novel of “intense power … examining the role of women in modern African society” by the acclaimed Ghanaian author (Publishers Weekly).

    Living in Ghana’s capital city of Accra with a postgraduate degree and a career in data analysis, Esi Sekyi is a thoroughly modern African woman. Perhaps that is why she decides to divorce her husband after enduring yet another morning’s marital rape. Though her friends and family are baffled by her decision (after all, he doesn’t beat her!), Esi holds fast. When she falls in love with a married man—wealthy, and able to arrange a polygamous marriage—the modern woman finds herself trapped in a new set of problems.

    Witty and compelling, Aidoo’s novel, according to Manthia Diawara, "inaugurates a new realist style in African literature." In an afterword to this edition, Tuzyline Jita Allan "places Aidoo’s work in a historical context and helps introduce this remarkable writer [who] sheds light on women’s problems around the globe" (Publishers Weekly).
