Review of “The Winds of Harmattan” (2003)

Text

Nnedi Okorafor (writer).

Read in 2021.

The life of a witch who, amid her own sexist persecution in a future Africa, quiets the Harmattan.

A power fantasy using victimhood to enhance the protagonist’s glorious destiny, it is needfully nuanced by Asuquo’s tinge of moral greyness.
