Whether she is writing about the Biafran War or about the immigrant experience in the United States, Nigerian novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, who counts Beyonce, Oprah, and Hillary Clinton among her fans, creates richly textured and layered narratives which are compelling to read. In this class, we will delve into two of Adichie’s bestselling and award-winning novels: Half of a Yellow Sun and Americanah. These novels not only lay out Adichie’s hopes for a fairer and equitable world but are also, in equal measure, pragmatic and wry about the human condition. We will also watch a film adaptation of Half of a Yellow Sun
