    Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie turns 44 today, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

    Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (born September 15, 1977) is a Nigerian novelist, short story writer, and nonfiction author. She was dubbed “the most famous” of a “procession of highly renowned young anglophone authors [who] is succeeding in introducing a new generation of readers to African literature” by The Times Literary Supplement, notably in her adopted homeland of the United States.

    Adichie is the author of the feminist novels Purple Hibiscus (2003), Half of a Yellow Sun (2006), and Americanah (2013), as well as the short story collection The Thing Around Your Neck (2009) and the book-length essay; We Should All Be Feminists (2014).

    Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions (2017), Zikora (2020), and Notes on Grief are her most recent novels (2021). She received a MacArthur Genius Grant in 2008.

    Ngozi Adichie was first inspired by Chinua Achebe after reading his 1958 novel Things Fall Apart when she was ten years old; Adichie was moved by seeing her own life reflected in the pages. She has also cited Buchi Emecheta as a Nigerian literary forerunner, stating after his death, On the death of Buchi Emecheta, Adichie said: “Buchi Emecheta. We are able to speak because you first spoke. Thank you for your courage. Thank you for your art. Nodu na ndokwa.”

    Adichie published Decisions, a collection of poems, in 1997, and For Love of Biafra, a play, in 1998. “My Mother, the Crazy African,” a short story written when Adichie was a college senior in Connecticut, explores the difficulties that come when a person is confronted with two cultures that are diametrically opposed.
