An award-winning writer of contemporary fiction, this three-book collection will introduce you to the works of the talented author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie - including her Orange Prize for Fiction- and Bailey's Best of the Best Award-winning Half of a Yellow Sun.
A heartbreaking and exquisitely written literary masterpiece, the book is set in Nigeria during the 1960s - a time when the country was in the midst of a vicious civil war. Three people find themselves swept up in the violence of these years - a young boy from a poor village, a middle-class woman called Olanna whose relatives have been victims of the massacre and a mysterious white man who falls in love with Olanna's enigmatic twin sister... When their lives intersect, they have to question their own responses to unfolding political events.
Debut novel Purple Hibiscus and Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction 2014-shortlisted Americanah are equally powerful and will make you think about the world we live in.
