About this product
- DescriptionChika Unigwe is the winner of the 2012 Nigeria Prize for Literature for On Black Sisters Street. On Black Sisters Street tells the haunting story of four very different women who have left their African homeland for the riches of Europe-and who are thrown together by bad luck and big dreams into a sisterhood that will change their lives. Each night, Sisi, Ama, Efe, and Joyce stand in the windows of Antwerp's red-light district, promising to make men's desires come true-if only for half an hour. They offer their bodies to strangers but their hearts to one, each focused on earning eugh to get herself free, to send money home, or to save up for her own future. Drawn together by Sisi's murder, the women must choose between their secrets and their safety. This first paperback edition of On Black Sisters Street celebrates once again the U.S. publication debut of Chika Unigwe, a brilliant new writer and a standout voice among contemporary African authors.
