So Long a Letter

Summary: It is not only the fact that this is the most deeply felt presentation of the female condition in African fiction that gives distinction to this novel, but also its undoubted literary qualities, which seem to place it among the best novels that have come out of our continent. - West Africa This novel is a perceptive testimony to the plight of articulate women who live in social milieux dominated by attitudes and valu...es that deny them their proper place. It is a sequence of reminiscences, some wistful, some bitter, recounted by a recently widowed Senegalese school teacher. The letter, addressed to an old friend, is a record of her emotional struggle for survival after her husband's abrupt decision to take a second wife. Although his action is sanctioned by Islam, it is a calculated betrayal of his wife's trust and a brutal rejection of their life together.

  • by Wanda

    The primary subject of this book was a sequence of reminiscences about a woman after her husband passed. In my opinion, I think that the author capture the subject very well and demonstrated how women struggle and still remain strong in their families after losing their husbands.

    The most used information I received was to remain strong as an individual and maintain a cohensive family dynamic regardless of the situation.
