Nervous Conditions

Quick Overview

by Tsitsi Dangarembga

Two decades before Zimbabwe would win independence and ended white minority rule, thirteen-year-old Tambudzai Sigauke embarks on her education. On her shoulders rest the economic hopes of her parents, siblings, and extended family, and within her burns the desire for independence. A timeless coming-of-age tale, and a powerful exploration of cultural imperialism, Nervous Conditions charts Tambu’s journey to personhood in a nation that is also emerging. ‘With its searing observations, devastating exploration of the state of “not being”, wicked humour and astonishing immersion into the mind of a young woman growing up and growing old before her time, the novel is a masterpiece.’ Madelein Thien
