Changes explores the complex world in which the lives of professional working women have changed sharply, but the cultural assumptions of men’s lives have not. Witty and compelling, Aidoo’s novel, according to Manthia Diawara, "inaugurates a new realist style in African literature."

"Aidoo writes with intense power in a novel that, in examining the role of women in modern African society, also sheds light on women’s problems around the globe."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Suggested for course use in:
African literature
African studies
Family Studies

Ama Ata Aidoo, one of Ghana’s most distinguished writers, is the author of two other works of fiction, Our Sister Killjoy and No Sweetness Here (The Feminist Press), as well as plays, poems, and children’s books. Tuzyline Jita Allan is associate professor of English at Baruch College, CUNY.

"Aidoo writes with intense power in a novel that, in examining the role of women in modern African society, also sheds light on women's problems around the globe." --Publishers Weekly "Changes reads... with abundant vernacular style, female friendship, and freedom and mobility in the modern city." --Manthia Diawara, Director of Africana Studies and Professor of Comparative Literature and Film, New York University

"A powerful novel that explores the complex web of late 20th-century human relationships in ways that are both comic and deeply affecting." --Boston Phoenix

"A wonderfully warm novel that truly shows that the more things remain the same (love) the more changes we (society) go through." --Nikki Giovanni, author of Ego-Tripping and Other Poems for Young People
