Reading fiction 1: Chimamanda Adichie

At the suggestion of my girlfriend, I decided to start a foray into contemporary fiction with one of Nigeria’s most well-known authors, Chimamanda Adichie. If you haven’t heard her name, you might hear her voice on the new Beyonce album (sample of a TED talk actually).

I haven’t actually started reading Half of a Yellow Sun, a story of two sisters during the Nigerian civil war, but expect a review in this placeholder blog post eventually. Just need to start it enough times and I’ll finish it 😉
