I was in Birmingham today. I passing through Victoria Square, on my way to the Central Library, when I met Anna Blackwell. She was reading Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Half of a Yellow Sun.
I asked Anna how she was finding the novel and she said she was enjoying it.
She said she thought it was “very good… well written [and] an unusual book. It’s just different. It makes you realize what war can do to people who are close to each other.”
I’ve heard and read a lot about both Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and her books. Her novels are on the top of my reading list and I look forward to reading and, possibly, reviewing them. Until that happens, I suspect I’ll be reading and re-reading everything I come across on the author and her books, including:
- “Nigerian Identity is Burdensome”: The Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Interview by Wale Adebanwi, Nigerian Village Square.
- Madonna’s not our saviour, by Stephen Moss, The Guardian, June 8, 2007.
- Interview with Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, BookBrowse.com.
- Interview: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, by Molara Wood, BBC Africa Beyond.
- Interview with Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie about Half of a Yellow Sun, Socialist Worker Online, June 11, 2007.
