Full Biography 

Adichie grew up in Nigeria and moved to the United States to study communication and political science. She went on to obtain Creative Writing Master’s degree from John Hopkins University and subsequently a Master’s degree in African History from Yale University.

Her first novel Purple Hibiscus (2003) received wide critical acclaim and won the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best First Book in 2005. Half of a Yellow Sun (2006), which explores class, race and the end of colonialism amidst the Nigerian Civil War, became an international bestseller and was awarded the Orange Broadband Prize for Fiction (now the Women’s Prize for Fiction) in 2007, whilst her third novel Americanah (2014) maps the existential, racial and romantic struggles of a young Nigerian woman living in the United States.

Adichie is also the author of a short fiction collection The Thing Around Your Neck and two book-length essays, We Should All Be Feminists and Dear Ijeawele, or a Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions.
