From Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the Orange Prize-winning author of "Half of a Yellow Sun", come twelve dazzling stories in which she turns her penetrating eye on the ties that bind men and women, parents and children, Nigeria and the West. Searing and profound, suffused with beauty, sorrow and longing, this collection is a resounding confirmation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's prodigious storytelling powers. This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60 per cent of the author's work and as low as 30 per cent with characters and plotlines more

Review quote

"These 12 stories explore Nigerians' experience of America where, oddly, fat people are poor and the rich are thin, cultures clash and dreams are unfulfilled. Adichie's storytelling and Andoh's narration are so compelling, I miss the characters now the stories are over." Rachel Redford, The Observer "Adjoa Andoh has read all Adichie's books so far and, for me at least, has become the author's authentic voice." Sue Arnold, The Guardian"show more
