Nervous Conditions

(1988)
(The first book in the Nervous Conditions series)
A novel by

 
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.

    

"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
