Bessie Head writes about ordinary women in African villages, often dealing with extaordinary situations. She writes with great love and feeling for these women. In a series of short, simply presented stories, Bessie Head introduces us to women with profund decisions to make, and often difficult circumstances to deal with. How each woman faces these trials and deals with them, reveals the authors deep understanding of the way tragic and profound experiences can enrich us and give greater meaning to our own and others lives.Much more than a description of womens position in African society. This is a great book from a GREAT writer and humanitarian.
