Author: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
THE EMOTIONAL STORMS WEATHERED BY A MOTHER AND DAUGHTER YIELD A PROFOUND NEW UNDERSTANDING IN A MOVING SHORT STORY BY THE BESTSELLING, AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR OF 'AMERICANAH' AND 'WE SHOULD ALL BE FEMINISTS'.
When Zikora, a DC lawyer from Nigeria, tells her equally high-powered lover that she's pregnant, he abandons her. But it's Zikora's demanding, self-possessed mother, in town for the birth, who makes Zikora feel like a lonely little girl all over again. Shunned by the speed with which her ideal life fell apart, Zikora turns to reflecting on her mother's painful past and struggle for dignity. Preparing for motherhood, Zikora begins to see more clearly what her own mother wants for her, for her new baby, and for herself.
