Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments The Stillborn, Zaynab Alkali, 198[4], Nigeria, NOVEL

"...Each woman faces a changing world that presents both potential loss and a chance for freedom as traditions collapse and new ones form. The Stillborn sharply criticizes the sexism of traditional Nigerian society and the lack of roots in the new city-based culture, while at the same time it praises the strength and determination of three women who choose different paths into unhappiness and must find their own ways out."

(E.B., p. 365)
