Compilation of the first 3 books in the Aya series, published in English under the titles: Aya, Aya of Yop City and Aya : the secrets come out. Originally published in French as v. 1-3 of Aya de Youpougon.
Translated by Helge Dascher with assistance from Dag Dascher--T.p. verso.
Summary "Ivory Coast, 1978. It's a golden time, and the nation--an oasis of affluence and stability in West Africa--seems fueled by something wondrous. Aya is loosely based upon Marguerite Abouet's youth in Yop City. It is the story of the studious and clear-sighted 19-year old Aya, her easy-going friends Adjoua and Bintou, and their meddling relatives and neighbors. It's a wry soap opera revolving around the simple pleasures and private troubles of everyday life in Yop City."--Cover.
