chimamanda is an excellent author who weaves her unique cultural perspective into her work. politics, religion, and culture are dissected in her literary masterpieces, inviting you headfirst into a dialogue with her characters. all of her books are good, but half of a yellow sun made me ache with compassion and love for the characters and also informed me of the biafra war in nigeria. she’s dope. anyway, here she’s building on the danger of telling a single story.
