A collection of 11 stories, these range from the politics of wigs to the joys of motherhood. In them, the author writes about life in post-colonial Africa, inviting the reader to confront life as it is and rise to the challenge of injustice and ignorance. Ama Ata Aidoo has written various plays "The Dilemma of a Ghost/Anowa" and a novel "Our Sister Killjoy". The books in this series are for the general reader, but are also suitable for schools and universities.
