Aman: The Story of a Somali Girl

by Aman et al
£9.99   paperback  Bloomsbury (1995)

Aman: The Story of a Somali Girl by Aman et al Aman is the intimate first-person account of a young woman's coming-of-age in Somalia. The daughter of tribal leaders, Aman recounts her dramatic life with stark simplicity and winning candour: an innocent childhood romance with a white boy that leads to murder; her circumcision 'ceremony'; an unwanted marriage at the age of thirteen; and her daring escape to the city where her beauty and curiosity lead her into a world of white men, parties, and runaway girls.
Aman takes the reader beyond the headlines of a war-torn country to tell the true story of what life is like for a woman in Somalia. As in Wild Swans by Jung Chang, Aman vividly evokes another way of life, while at the same time illuminating the female experience everywhere.
