a novel by PK Davids





Opuliche is a work of biographical fiction by Igbo proverbs author and poet Pauline Kanene Davids.

Davids' first novel on the life of a unique female heroine called Opuliche (Special One) is in the tradition of many feminist writings that have challenged and upstaged myths and long held notions of female silencing or lack of relevance in a traditional African environment. Tagged 'a story of courage and triumph,' PK's novel is told in twenty two short chapters divided in two equal parts. They chronicle the birth, growth, training and education of the girl child who grew to be the first female undergraduate of her town. By her struggles and achievements through college, Opuliche proves the popular maxim that one's fortune can be determined by oneself alone. The benign or otherwise malevolent circumstances all serve to help fulfil our chosen paths and destinies.
