"Many good novels written by men have come out of Africa, but few by black women. This is the novel we have been waiting for... it will be a classic."
Doris Lessing


"I am delighted to recommend this remarkable novelist."
Alice Walker


Dangaremba s acclaimed first novel tells of the coming-of-age of Tambu, and through her, also offers a profound portrait of African society. In awarding Nervous Conditions the Commonwealth Writers Prize for Africa in 1989, the judges described the book as a beautiful and sensitive exploration of the plight and struggle of an African people.... A distinguishing feature of this work is its courageous honesty and devastating understatement.
