In the late 1960's, Adah, a spirited and resourceful woman manages to move her family to London. Seeking an independent life for herself and her children she encounters racism and hard truths about being a new citizen. "Second Class Citizen pales a lot of academic feminist writing into insignificance." -The Guardian "Emecheta's prose has a shimmer of originality, of English being reinvented...Issues of survival lie inherent in her material and give her tales weight." --John Updike
