Searing and profound, suffused with beauty, sorrow and longing, powerful storytelling from acclaimed Nigerian-born author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (b.1977). The limits of 15-year-old Kambili’s world are defined by the high walls of her family estate and the dictates of her fanatically religious father. Her life is regulated by schedules: prayer, sleep, study, prayer. When Nigeria is shaken by a military coup, Kambili’s father sends her to live with her aunt. In this house, noisy and full of laughter, she discovers life and love – and a terrible, bruising secret deep within her family. The extraordinary debut novel from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, about the blurred lines between the old gods and the new, childhood and adulthood, love and hatred – the grey spaces in which truths are revealed and real life is lived.

Paperback, 307 pages.
