PRAISE FOR CHIMAMANDA NGOZI ADICHIE:
“[E]ndowed with the gift of ancient storytellers. Adichie knows what is at stake, and what to do about it. She is fearless.” —Chinua Achebe
“Adichie is both a grand storyteller and an incisive social commentator.” —Toronto Star
“One of the most artful writers of the English language.” —The Globe and Mail
“We probably don’t deserve Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. The author and feminist who inspired Beyoncé is now fighting America’s political battles, and man is she good at it.” —The Cut
“[O]ne of the world’s leading thinkers and a true champion of women’s rights.” —Okayafrica
“Considered the literary successor of the recently deceased Chinua Achebe, Adichie navigates cultural, social and personal complexities with great dexterity.” —Global Atlanta
“All her life Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has been writing in the shadow of an African literary giant. But Chinua Achebe’s gone now, and it is Adichie’s turn to stake her claim as Nigeria’s pre-eminent author and one of Africa’s most important voices. . . . Nigeria’s got a ready-made replacement [for Chinua Achebe] in the wings.” —Daily Maverick
“Adiche’s prose is lush and acerbic, arch and sexy and politically exacting.” —Lisa Moore, author of Caught
“Immensely talented.” —The New York Times Book Review
“Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s incessant curiosity about people is what makes her such a wonderful storyteller.” —The Sunday Telegraph
“[Adichie’s] unflinching, multi-arc redemption stories bridge the gap between Africa and the West, in a vein perhaps only comparable to that of the late, missed Chinua Achebe.” —Interview
“[O]ne of the most beloved and critically lauded writers working today.” —The Guardian
“Adichie has shown herself a powerful writer, moving with disquieting ease from humour to horror, and anger to tenderness.” —The Scotsman
“A fiction writer of exceptional talent.” —The Telegraph
