Africa Writes 2017: The Ultimate Tradegy by Abdulai Silá

The Ultimate Tragedy by Abdulai Silá
Sunday 2 July, British Library, London

The first novel ever to be translated into English from Guinea Bissau, The Ultimate Tragedy is a tale of love and emerging political awareness in an Africa beginning to challenge Portuguese colonial rule. Ndani leaves her village to seek a better life in the capital, finding work as a maid for a Portuguese family. The mistress of the house, Dona Deolinda, embarks on a mission to save Ndani’s soul through religious teaching, but the master of the house has less righteous intentions.
