Adichie’s father, James Nwoye Adichie, died late last year of kidney disease amid the global pandemic.

Her new book explores the anger and loneliness that accompanies sudden loss and is ultimately a work of remembrance, meditation and hope. 

Chimamanda has often credited her father for the stories of the Biafran war that inspired her novel Half of a Yellow Sun.
