A Woman of Africa by Nick Roddy

A Woman of Africa

Nick Roddy

This is a story about poverty, tragedy, desperation and prostitution. Don't be put off. It is also the courageous story of a woman coming to recognise her nature and growing into her true self. It is also funny. The unnamed heroine gives her unique and witty view on politics and religion as well as her own circumstances. I laughed and wept, I'm sure you will too.

I am an African woman. That's not a political statement. I am not a Whoopee Goldberg or an Oprah Winfrey, a middle-class American in search of an identity or asserting a political right. I am a woman and I am African. That is all there is to it, and that is my tragedy. That Africa is carried on the backs of its women is well known; well, that is when we are not on our backs.
