Maame TPB

by Jessica George | 14 February 2023
Hardback

Wonderfully funny yet packing a definite emotional punch, George's luminous debut about a modern woman desperately trying to break free from the shackles of her Ghanian parents' expectations is perfect reading for fans of Bonnie Garmus and Candice Carty-Williams.

 

Maame (ma-meh) has many meanings in Twi, but in my case, it means woman.

Meet Maddie. All her life, she's been told who she is. To her Ghanaian parents, she's Maame: the one who takes care of the family. Her mum's stand-in. The primary carer for her father, who suffers from Parkinson's. She's the responsible sister, the quiet friend. The one who keeps the peace - and the secrets.

It's time for her to speak up.

Maddie knows what kind of woman she wants to be. One who wears a bright yellow suit, dates men who definitely aren't on her mum's list of prospective husbands, and stands up to her boss's microaggressions. Someone who doesn't have to google all her life choices. Who demands a seat at the table. But will it take losing everything to find her voice?

Unique, unfiltered and unforgettable, Maame is a deeply moving, achingly funny debut about finally finding where you belong.
