Review of “The Winds of Harmattan” (2003)
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.
