Changes: A Love Story Paperback – November 1, 1993
Enhance your purchase
A Commonwealth Prize–winning novel of “intense power . . . examining the role of women in modern African society” by the acclaimed Ghanaian author (Publishers Weekly).
Living in Ghana’s capital city of Accra with a postgraduate degree and a career in data analysis, Esi Sekyi is a thoroughly modern African woman. Perhaps that is why she decides to divorce her husband after enduring yet another morning’s marital rape. Though her friends and family are baffled by her decision (after all, he doesn’t beat her!), Esi holds fast. When she falls in love with a married man—wealthy, and able to arrange a polygamous marriage—the modern woman finds herself trapped in a new set of problems.
Witty and compelling, Aidoo’s novel, according to Manthia Diawara, “inaugurates a new realist style in African literature.” In an afterword to this edition, Tuzyline Jita Allan “places Aidoo’s work in a historical context and helps introduce this remarkable writer [who] 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."
"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
