    Inhaltsangabe

    The emotional storms weathered by a mother and daughter yield a profound new understanding in a moving short story by the best-selling, 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. Stunned by the speed with which her ideal life fell apart, she 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.

    Kritikerstimmen

    “The actor Adepero Oduye as narrator shifts seamlessly between characters, and I hung onto her every word.” (The New York Times)

    “The multitalented actress, director, singer, and writer Adepero Oduye provides an outstanding Nigerian-accented narration, charting Zikora's thoughts and feelings surrounding her failed relationship, her attempts to navigate new motherhood as a professional woman, and her developing understanding of her own mother's challenging relationship with Zikora's father in Nigeria.” (AudioFile Magazine)

    “[Adichie] is delivering brand-new material to a world that needs her talents more than ever.” (Entertainment Weekly)

    deep story

    i loved the story. Although it is s short story it touched on so many aspects of culture and living with that culrure in a completely diffeerrnt cultural environment, and making it wotk for you. it also shows the dilema many young African women face in life overseas- trying to achieve a balance between both worlds and values.
    The performance was authentic and excellent and made the story come alive.
