Of Women and Frogs (Special Festival Edition)

GHS 45.00

Esi is a feisty half-Nigerian girl growing up in post-colonial Ghana, with occasional visits to her maternal family in Lagos. When her curiosity about her body leads to a ginger-in-the-vagina punishment from her stepmother, Esi begins to question the hypocrisy of the adults around her and the restrictions they place on girls.

Moving between Ghana and Nigeria, this is a heart-warming story of a girl beating a path to self-actualisation amidst political upheaval in Rawlings’ Ghana and strained relations between her ancestral countries.

“This is a really wonderful story. [Bisi Adjapon] writes with incredible vividness and clarity. [Her] similies and attention to all the senses are really extraordinary.” ~ Dave Eggers, publisher of McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius

    I have just finished reading “Of Women and frogs” a novel by Bisi Adjapon with much enjoyment and over the top “shaking and quaking!” It is an enticing and mesmerizing read. It just pulls you along, and tugs at your heart, bringing back long forgotten strong and confusing feelings.I was stealing time to read between patients, and I don’t remember the last time I did that.
    “Of Women and Frogs” is an extensive coming of age story set in a scary time of political turmoil and I must salute Adjapon for pulling it together. There is a lot of really sensitive material which took a lot of courage to write: the hidden tragedy of a mother at a delicate age, the indignities of womanhood, and the complications of forbidden romance, to mention a few.
    A work of great commitment, “Of Women and Frogs” delves into many issues, and I suggest all women with an interest in sexuality and the female’s role in Ghanaian society should read this. My congratulations to Bisi Adjapon, my classmate. I am looking forward to reading a lot more from her.
