Reviews

"Elegant, moving . . . An affecting paean to the author's father, James Nwoye Adichie. The first professor of statistics in his country, James lived an eventful and sometimes fraught life. Funny and principled, he died during the pandemic--not of the virus but kidney disease. Adichie moves through some of the classic stages of grief, including no small amount of anger. . . Eventually, she reflects on a newfound awareness of mortality and finds a 'new urgency' to live her life and do her work." --Kirkus [starred review]
