The joys, the trials, the tragedies, and the sensibilities of being a woman of Samoa are highlighted in this superb collection. Afakasi Woman is a collection of 16 short stories, written by 2018 Pacific Laureate Lani Wendt Young. Originally released as a digital collection that won the University of the South Pacific fiction prize, this revised edition includes previously unpublished stories.
Each story is brimming with emotion, offering a unique, engrossing glimpse into the lives of women of the Pacific, as Wendt Young takes readers from tears of laughter to tears of sorrow from one story to the next.
