Description
A dazzling story collection from the best-selling author of Americanah and We Should All Be Feminists, "one of the world's great contemporary writers" (Barack Obama). In these twelve riveting stories, the award-winning Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie explores the ties that bind men and women, parents and children, Africa and the United States. Searing and profound, suffused with beauty, sorrow, and longing, these stories map, with Adichie's signature emotional wisdom, the collision of two cultures and the deeply human struggle to reconcile them.
