Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngoz Adichie


Bookseller Review by Issy:

‘Purple Hibiscus’ is set during the turbulence of a military coup of the Nigerian government and follows Kambili, a fifteen year old girl, growing up against a backdrop of religious extremism, domestic and wider violence and patriarchal oppression. This novel uses a coming of age story and the domestic struggles of a family to detail the larger effects of colonialism and corruption. Deeply moving and evocative, ‘Purple Hibiscus’ will have a profound and lasting effect on you.’
