Summary
"Compelling and heart-wrenching, Evening Primrose explores issues of race, poverty, and gender in post-apartheid South Africa through the eyes of a junior doctor... When Masechaba finally achieves her childhood dream of becoming a doctor, her ambition is tested as she faces the stark reality of South Africa's public health care system. As she leaves her deeply religious mother and makes friends with the politically-minded Nyasha, Masechaba's eyes are opened to the rising xenophobic tension that carries echoes of apartheid. Battling her inner demons, she must decide if she should take a stand to help her best friend, even if it comes at a high personal cost. A powerfully insightful novel from "South Africa's Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie" (The Bookseller), Evening Primrose explores issues of race, gender, and the medical profession with tenderness and urgency"--Provided by publisher
