Memoirs of a Mother
Written in the first person, this fictional biography tells the deeply moving story of a Ugandan woman forced to trade the romantic idealism of her youth for a mundane marriage, based on outmoded rules and obligations. The quest to balance the need for social respectability with the dictates of her heart, leads to painful discoveries, which finally force her to assert her individuality against oppressive social norms. Described as highly economical and poetic, the novel illuminates remote corners of family life in modern Uganda.
