Novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie was born in Nigeria. Her novel "Americanah" was awarded the National Book Critics Circle Award and was named one of The New York Times Ten Best Books of the year. Like Adichie, it straddles the cultures of America and Nigeria, considering the challenges, status, and perceptions of Africans abroad. Themes of race, displacement, power and class are combined with humor, popular culture and a gripping love story. Her previous books include the novels "Half of a Yellow Sun" and "Purple Hibiscus," and the story collection "The Thing Around Your Neck." The recipient of a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, Adichie was named one of the 20 most important fiction writers today under 40 years old by The New Yorker. She appeared in conversation with Dave Eggers on Sept. 30, 2014.
