The three books are great books of story. The half of a yellow moon recounting of the NIGERIAN civil war says much about how much damage was done and how something out to be done on the state of the Igbos in Nigeria

'dumebi liked a quote
Women and Madness by Phyllis Chesler
“Mary, mother of Jesus, pays for her maternity by giving up her body, almost entirely: she foregoes both (hetero) sexual pleasure (Christ's birth is a virgin and "spiritual" birth) and physical prowess. She has no direct worldly power but, like her crucified son, is easily identified with by many people, especially women, as a powerless figure. Mary symbolizes power achieved through receptivity, compassion, and a uterus. (There's nothing intrinsically wrong with a consciously willed "receptivity" to the universe; on the contrary, it is highly desirable, and should certainly include "receptivity" to many things other than holy sperm and suffering.)”
Phyllis Chesler
