Publisher Comments:

Shortlisted for the 2004 Orange Prize, this is a haunting tale of Africa and an adolescence undergoing tremendous changes. It will appeal to fans of Alice Walker and J.M. Coetzee. "Political brutality and domestic violence, religion and witchcraft all merge with subtle force in this memorable novel" Hugo Hamilton

Jan Durante, February 15, 2011 (view all comments by Jan Durante)
Purple Hibiscus is a stunning coming-of-age story featuring fifteen-year-old Kambili, whose world appears to be orderly, respectable, and predictable. In fact, her family life is a hellish nightmare warped by her tortured, dictatorial father. When Kambili and her brother visit their aunt and her family, they discover a world filled with laughter and love, instead of one defined by silence, rigidity and rage. Each major character in this novel will undergo a melange of changes, as violence descends upon their beloved homeland, Nigeria.
