Description

A searing, insightful new novel from 'South Africa's Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie' (Bookseller) that explores issues of race, poverty and gender.


 


Told in the form of a one-sided conversation with God, Evening Primrose is the story of Masechaba, a young woman who achieves her childhood dream of becoming a doctor, yet soon faces the stark reality of South Africa's healthcare system.


As she leaves her deeply religious mother and makes friends with the politically-minded Nyasha, Masechaba's eyes are opened to rising xenophobic tension in the shadow of the apartheid.


Battling her own personal demons, she must decide if she should make a stand to help her friend, even if it comes at a high personal cost.
