The first wife : a tale of polygamy by Paulina Chiziane( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this, a ground-breaking publication in the canon of non-Western women's literary history, Paulina Chiziani -- the first woman from Mozambique ever to publish a novel -- lifts the lid on her country's values and its hypocracies. After 20 years of marriage, Rami discovers that her husband has been living a double -- or rather, a quintuple -- life. After Tony is forced to marry the four other women -- as well as an additional lover -- according to polygamist custom, the rival lovers join together to declare their voices and demand their rights

"Rami, casada há vinte anos com Tony, um alto funcionário da polícia, de quem tem vários filhos, descobre que o partilha com várias mulheres, com as quais ele constituiu outras famílias. O seu casamento, de (papel passado) e aliança no dedo, resume-se afinal a um irónico drama de que ela é apenas uma das personagens. Numa procura febril, Rami obriga-se a conhecer (as outras). O seu marido é um polígamo! Na via dolorosa que então começa, séculos de tradição e de costumes, a crueldade da vida e as diferenças abissais de cultura entre o norte e o sul da terra que é sua, esmagam-na. E só a sabedoria infinita que o sofrimento provoca lhe vai apontando o rumo num labirinto de emoções, de revelações, de contradições e perigosas ambiguidades. Poligamia e monogamia, que significado assumem? Cultura, institucionalização, hipocrisia, comodismo, convenção ou a condição natural de se ser humano, no quadro da inteligência e dos afectos? Paulina Chiziane estende-nos o fio de Ariadne e guia-nos com o desassombro, a perícia e a verdade de quem conhece o direito e o avesso da aventura de viver a vida. Niketche, dança de amor e erotismo, é um espelho em que nos vemos e revemos, mas no qual, seguramente, só alguns de nós admitirão reflectir-se."--Page 4 of cover
O alegre canto da perdiz : romance by Paulina Chiziane( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Delfina é uma mulher bonita, <<uma negra daquelas que os brancos gostam>>. A história de vida desta Delfina, <<dos contrastes, dos conflitos, das confusões e contradições>>, é a história da mulher africana, a história da apocalíptica perda do sonho. Esta mulher debate-se entre <<escolher o caminho do sofrimento>>, o amor que sente por José dos Montes, e <<eliminar a sua raça para ganhar a liberdade>>, procurando o homem branco que lhe dará o alimento e o conforto que deseja. Mas o que é o amor para a mulher negra? Na terra onde as mulheres se casam por encomenda na adolescência? O problema arrasta-se ao longo do livro, aparentemente sem solução: <<viver em dois mundos é o mesmo que viver em dois corpos, não se pode. Tu és negra, jamais serás branca>>. Mesmo assim, a mulher negra <<procura um filho mulato, para aliviar o negro da sua pele como quem alivia as roupas de luto>>. O sufoco das palavras outrora silenciadas, a valentia e a frontalidade gritam alto nos romances de Paulina Chiziane. Neste diálogo consigo própria, a conhecida escritora moçambicana, mistura imaginação, fantástico, misticismo, num retrato poderoso e peculiar da sociedade e da mulher africanas

"A farce that celebrates the triumph of six women over one philandering man, this novel uses an age-old African story to address the subjection of women in modern Mozambique. After 20 years of marriage, Rami discovers that her husband, a senior police officer in Maputo, has a very big secret: he has been supporting four other households, complete with wives and children, for many years. Deciding not to give in to anger, Rami turns the tables and decides to make an honest polygamist out of Tony, insisting that he marry her love rivals according to customary law. She and the other women quickly join forces—they even recruit a sixth woman Tony has taken as a lover—to demand their rights, their voices, and support for their children"--Amazon.com
