Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments Second Class Citizen, Buchi Emecheta, 1974, Nigeria/England, NOVEL

"...As a young girl, Adah dreams of going to school and then to the United Kingdom, whose name, "when pronounced by Adah's father sounded so heavy, like the type of noise one associated with bombs."...The man she chooses turns out to be self-centered, lazy, and chauvinistic, proud of his educated wife who can stay in Nigeria and financially support his own academic program in England..."

(E.B., p. 303)
