Nervous Conditions, by Tsitsi Dangarembga
Nyasha spent most of her formative years in England while her mother and father were getting their education.

She experiences inner turmoil as she tries to come to terms with being a woman in Africa. As we see Nyasha's struggles through the eyes of Tambu, we begin to understand the continuing devastation countries are experiencing as a result of colonization by another culture.
