Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

A storyteller since she was a child, novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has an extraordinary talent for finding touching human stories in hardship. In her bestseller Half of a Yellow Sun, she showed that people not only die in wars, but also live, love and dream during them. Her latest book, The Thing Around Your Neck, details the Nigerian-American immigrant experience. Just eight years after her first novel was published, Adichie’s books have been translated into more than 30 languages and are taught in schools around the world.
