Sardines free pdf Winner of the Neustadt International Prize for Literature
Farah's landmark "Variations on the Theme of an African Dictatorship" trilogy is comprised by the novels "Sweet and Sour Milk," "Sardines," and "Close Sesame." In this volume, the second of the three, a woman loses her job as editor of the national newspaper and then finds her efforts to instill her daughter with a sense of dignity and independence threatened by an oppressive government and the traditions of conservative Islam.
"Sardines" brilliantly combines a social commentary on life under a dictatorship with a compassionate exploration of African feminist issues.
