Description

These twelve dazzling stories from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie - the Orange Broadband Prize-winning author of Half of a Yellow Sun - are her most intimate works to date.

In these stories Adichie turns her penetrating eye to the ties that bind men and women, parents and children, Nigeria and the United States. In -A Private Experience,- a medical student hides from a violent riot with a poor Muslim woman, and the young mother at the centre of -Imitation- finds her comfortable life in Philadelphia threatened when she learns that her husband has moved his mistress into their Lagos home.

Searing and profound, suffused with beauty, sorrow and longing, this collection is a resounding confirmation of Adichie-s prodigious literary powers.
