A powerful and timely novel from ‘South Africa’s Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’ (Bookseller) .

’Heart-wrenching’ Grazia.

With urgency and tenderness Evening Primrose explores issues of race, gender and the medical profession through the eyes of a junior doctor.

When Masechaba finally achieves her childhood dream of becoming a doctor, her ambition is tested as she faces the stark reality of South Africa’s public healthcare system.

As she leaves her deeply religious mother and makes friends with the politically-minded Nyasha, Masechaba’s eyes are opened to the rising xenophobic tension that carries echoes of apartheid.

Battling her inner demons, she must decide if she should take a stand to help her best friend, even it comes at a high personal cost.

’The best kind of political novel, its turns of emotion are virtuosic. Matlwa’s voice is one we need.’ Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, author of Harmless Like You

Slices straight to the heart, deft and clean’ Laura Jane Williams, author of Becoming

’A daring and uniquely South African story’ Marie Claire, South Africa on Coconut
