Aman is the intimate first-person account of a young woman's coming-of-age in Somalia. THe daughter of tribal leaders, Aman recounts her dramatic life with stark simplicity and winning candour an innocent childhood romance with a white boy that leads to murder; her circumcision 'ceremony'; an unwanted marriage at the age of thirteen; and her daring escape to the city where her beauty and curiosity lead her into a world of white men, parties and runaway girls. -- Book jacket.
