Celebrating 25 Years of the Women's Prize for Fiction

It is our great pleasure to confirm Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie as the winner of the Women’s Prize Winner of Winners.

Following a public vote in 2020, in which readers were invited to choose their favourite book from the 25 winners in the history of the Women’s Prize, Adichie’s soaring epic of colonialism, race and love in civil war-era Nigeria triumphed over works by Zadie Smith, Ann Patchett and Andrea Levy amongst others.

 

“I’m especially moved to be voted ‘Winner of Winners’ because this is the Prize that first brought a wide readership to my work – and has also introduced me to the work of many talented writers.”

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

With the award turning twenty five this year, now is the perfect time to get acquainted with the iconic previous winners.
