A Vintage Shorts "Short Story Month" Selection

Mrs. Emenike resents that her husband drives a Mercedes while she is relegated the "noisy fiat," and she loathes the words "free primary education," a new government initiative for which three of her servants have abandoned her. But, when the program is recalled, ten-year-old Vero, whose hopes of going to school have been dashed, is Mrs. Emenike's next willing recruit—young, innocent, and desperate to do anything and everything she must to earn an education.

In this masterful story by "the father of Nigerian writing," Chinua Achebe portrays the devastating injustice done to young women by government corruption and wealth inequality. Selected from Achebe's much-lauded collection of short fiction, Girls at War.
