Nervous Conditions

“Nervous Conditions” is a novel by Tsitsi Dangarembga is set in colonial Rhodesia in the 1960s and it is centered around the coming of age story of a teenage girl, Tambu and the ways old and new ways of living come clashing around her. I highly recommend this novel, not only for those interested in the issues of patriarchy and feminism in african societies, but also for those who like a good storytelling, she really draws you in the world that the characters live in and you can’t help yourself but start taking sides and being engaged in the story.

your local library should have it, and if you know of any good book to read, please let me know, I have to keep my reading list long somehow 🙂
