Reviews

"A gorgeous, pitiless account of love, violence and betrayal during the Biafran war." --Time"Instantly enthralling. . . . Vivid. . . . Powerful . . . A story whose characters live in a changing wartime atmosphere, doing their best to keep that atmosphere at bay." --The New York Times"Ingenious. . . . [With] searching insight, compassion and an unexpected yet utterly appropriate touch of wit, Adichie has created an extraordinary book." --Los Angeles Times"Brilliant. . . . Adichie entwines love and politics to a degree rarely achieved by novelists. . . . That is what great fiction does-it simultaneously devours and ennobles, and in its freely acknowledged invention comes to be truer than the facts upon which it is built." --Elle
