Patchwork (Penguin Modern Classics)

by Ellen Mulenga Banda-Aaku



Winner of the Penguin Prize for African Writing 2010 (fiction).

Destined from birth to inhabit two very different worlds – that of her father, the wealthy Joseph Sakavungo, and that of her mother, his mistress.  This emotive tale takes us to the heart of a young girl’s attempts to come to terms with her own identity and fashion a future for herself from the patchwork of the life she was born into. Beautifully constructed, warm and wise, this is a novel that will transport the reader to a world in which we can all become more of the sum of our parts.

Sorry, supplier out of stock!
