Description

From Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the Orange Prize-winning author of Half of a Yellow Sun, come 12 dazzling stories in which she turns her penetrating eye on the ties that bind men and women, parents and children, Nigeria and the West. Searing and profound, suffused with beauty, sorrow and longing, this collection is a resounding confirmation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's prodigious storytelling powers.

Great stories from a country we hardly know

"Africa" for us western readers is a great unknown, with few exceptions. Chimamanda's powerful voice can be a great introduction to a whole world. Between a mythical, at times painful, past and a complex, nuanced present her characters - especially the courageous proud women, struggle to conquer happiness, self-esteem and respect.
