Book: No Sweetness Here
Authour: Ama Ata Aidoo
Reviewed by: Martin Bishop
Available at; Aqua bookstore
IN this book Ama points out what’s wrong while still being hopeful for the future. Some of the stories deal with village life and some have a more urban setting but they all present an Africa that is modern and changing.
This is probably one of those most depressing things ever. Take example of the story of a woman who wants a divorce but the son is bitten by a snake and dies. She is left alone with nobody and no money. “What do you do when your only water pot breaks.” is probably the line.
