About this book

‘Purple Mangoes’ is a collection of short stories that delve into the joys, pains and mysteries of womanhood in Nigeria. With a touch of humour and sarcasm, it examines the daily experiences of women in an African context. From witchcraft to prostitution, circumcision to love, childbirth and redemption, ‘Purple Mangoes’ offers diverse strong and stirring female characters. The stories are a subtle reminder of the need and importance of new attitudes and change towards discriminatory gendered practices as a result of cultural and religious beliefs which act as limiting factors towards women realising their full potential.
