The Dirty bits - for girls

Edited and introduced by India Knight, The Dirty Bits - for girls is an unmissable collection. From zipless action in Fear of Flying to jolly romps with Jilly Cooper ; from transgressions with a priest in The Thorn Birds to mischief with Mellors ; from a gentle first encounter with ’Ralph’ in Forever to anything and everything but gentle in The Story of O. Even Keats, Chaucer and Shakespeare are up for no good. These are the stories that taught us about sex, volumes pilfered from our parents’ bookshelves, books passed girl to girl, hidden in desks, whispered and wondered about.

Chimamanda Ngozi ADICHIE (Nigeria)
Half of a yellow sun
Harper Perennial

The three main characters in this novel, set in Nigeria during the 1960s, are swept up in the violence during the turbulent years of a vicious civil war in which a million people died and thousands were massacred in cold blood. One is a young boy from a poor village who is employed at a university lecturer’s house. The other is a young middle-class woman, Olanna, who has to confront the reality of the massacre of her relatives. And the third is a white man, a writer who lives in Nigeria for no clear reason, and who falls in love with Olanna’s twin sister, a remote and enigmatic character. As these people’s lives intersect, they have to question their own responses to the unfolding political events.
