This book examines the fiction, poetry, drama, and feminist theory of Nigerian writer Akachi Adimora-Ezeigbo.

The book includes a literary biography, professional profile, and an interview with professor Adimora-Ezeigbo that offers valuable insight into her life and works. Contributing scholars provide critical and theoretical perspectives on Adimora-Ezeigbo’s ouvre that represents a postcolonial lens to interpret the African world. Emerging Perspectives contextualizes Adimora-Ezeigbo’s works of fiction, poetry, and drama within African, Nigerian, and Women’s literary tradition.
