Captured, abducted and married into Boko Haram, the narrator of this story witnesses and suffers the horrors of a community of men governed by a brutal code of violence. Barely more than a girl herself, she must soon learn how to survive as a woman with a child of her own. Just as the world around her seems entirely consumed by madness, bound for hell, she is offered an escape of sorts - but only into another landscape of trials and terrors amidst the unforgiving wilds of northeastern Nigeria, through the forest and beyond; a place where her traumas are met with the blinkered judgement of a society in denial.


How do we love in a world that has lost its moorings? How can we comprehend the barbarism of our enemies, and learn forgiveness for atrocities committed in the name of ideology? Edna O'Brien's new novel pierces to the heart of these questions: and the result is her masterpiece.

O autoru

Edna O’Brien (rođena 1930), irska autorica nagrađivanih romana, drama i kratkih priča, smatra se jednom od najvećih hroničarki ženskog iskustva u dvadesetom stoljeću. Zbog revolucionarnih prikaza ženske seksualnosti, njen debitantski roman Provincijalke bio je zabranjen u Irskoj. Njena najpoznatija djela su Sveci i grešniciAugust je grešan mjesec, Mjesto iskona, itd. Male crvene stolice, objavljene 2015. godine, američki pisac Philip Roth nazvao je njenim remek-djelom.
