I have quite an open adoration for ‘Purple Hibiscus’ and ‘Half Of A Yellow Sun’ author Chimamanda Adichie. An exquisite writer whose politically charged pieces continue to redefine the marginal singularity of the “African story“, Adichie is the sort of writer I’d love to be. Better still, she’s always laced with a formidable dignified demeanor.
I was quite surprised to stumble across this interview (by ‘stumble’, I mean deliberately search for something of the like), which she did last year. Discussing everything from her impetus for writing, views on matrimony (“marriage as an institution can be very dangerous for women”), growing up in the house that Chinua Achebe once lived and much more.
