Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

I’ve been hearing a lot of great things about this new collection of tof short stories. You can read the review of the book from the Seattle Times here and an excellent review from The Gaurdian here. The author was on the Diane Rehm show today, you can listen to her speak about her novel, the importance of Chinua Achebe to her own path as a writer, and the complex negotiations and disagreements about race between the West and Africa – and perhaps most interestingly, between African/Black Americans and Africans.
