Look Inside

Head Above Water (African Writers Series)

“As for my survival for the past twenty years in England, from when I was a little over twenty, dragging four cold and dripping babies with me and pregnant with the fifth one – that is a miracle. And if for any reason you do not believe in miracles, please start believing, because keeping my head above water in this indifferent society…is a miracle.”

Buchi Emecheta’s autobiography spans the transition from a tribal childhood in the African bush to life in North London as an internationally acclaimed writer. In Head Above Water, she gives a sharply-observed account of her struggle to establish herself as a writer. Every page of this autobiography reveals her extraordinary talent, determination and wry humour.
