9781847088383: Under the Udala Trees

Inspired by Nigeria's folktales and war, Under the Udala Trees is a deeply searching, powerful debut about the dangers of living and loving openly.

Ijeoma comes of age as her nation does; born before independence, she is eleven when civil war breaks out in the young republic of Nigeria. Sent away to safety, she meets another displaced child, and the star-crossed pair fall in love. They are from different ethnic communities. They are also both girls.

When their love is discovered, Ijeoma learns that she will have to hide this part of herself. But there is a cost to living inside a lie.

As Edwidge Danticat has made personal the legacy of Haiti's political coming-of-age, Okparanta's Under the Udala Trees uses one woman's lifetime to examine the ways in which Nigerians continue to struggle toward selfhood. Even as their nation contends with and recovers from the effects of war and division, Nigerian lives are wrecked and lost from taboo and prejudice. But this story offers a glimmer of hope -- a future where a woman might just be able to shape her life around truth and love.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Under the Udala Trees

Chinelo Okparanta has written a remarkable and exquisite first novel about wars both external and internal endurance, survival, and love. A coming-of-age story that demands not just to be read but felt, Under the Udala Trees wraps us in the spell of an exceptionally talented writer and storyteller. Edwidge Danticat
Under the Udala Trees is my favorite debut novel of the year gorgeous, moving, and entirely hopeful. I wept through the final pages of this beautifully written, extremely necessary book. Jami Attenberg
An evocative, fiercely told story about a woman s life, about family and love, and about becoming who you are meant to be. Chinelo Okparanta is an incendiary, essential voice. Justin Torres
Boldly unadorned and utterly heartbreaking Okparanta dares to tell a story that the world desperately needs to hear. Raw, emotionally intelligent, and unflinchingly honest, Under the Udala Trees is a triumph. Taiye Selasi

Okparanta tells a tale of conflict and compromise, of love and power, and of family those we are born into and those we make for ourselves. A stunning book. Unforgettable. Maaza Mengiste

Chinelo Okparanta is a major new voice not only because of her mesmerizing storytelling, but for her bravery and originality. She is a truth teller and soothsayer. Under the Udala Trees is breathtaking, rich with history and heart. Tayari Jones
"

From the Inside Flap:

A unique and devastatingly hopeful story about the paradox of love: even in the midst of war, and ina world dominated by violence and prejudice, still, love transcends." Mia Couto

Ijeoma comes of age as her nation does; born before independence, she is eleven when civil war breaks out in the young republic of Nigeria. Sent away to safety, she meets another displaced child and they, star-crossed, fall in love. They are from different ethnic communities. They are also both girls.

When their love is discovered, Ijeoma learns that she will have to hide this part of herself. But there is a cost to living inside a lie.

Inspired by Nigeria s folktales and its war, Under the Udala Trees shows through one woman s lifetime how the struggles and divisions of a nation are inscribed into the souls of its citizens. In prose that is elegant and spare, with insights heartbreaking and electrifying, it offers a story shot through with hope that points to a future when a woman might just be able to become fully herself, shaping her life around truth and love.
