Wilhelmina Jenkins | 2049 comments Buchi Emecheta, the author of The Joys of Motherhood and many other books, has died. I read The Joys Of Motherhood many years ago and I thought that it was brilliant. Has anyone else read her books?

Author Nnedi Okorafor talks about Emecheta's influence on her as a writer.
