Read from July 19 to 21, 2010

Awesome! There was a lot of character development. This books talks about struggles of culture vs. Modernity and how the character though at heart is modern uses westernization as an excuse to her life's obstacles . The book talks about feminity and how a woman's sexual need was always shunned whether it be through female circumcision or in the 19th and 20th century white America. It is quiet a shocker and the language is beautiful !
