Two award-winning writers explore the themes of love, politics, and cultural dislocation—the pull of dual loyalties so integral to the experience of leaving one’s home for a new country.
A recipient of a 2008 MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is the author of Half of a Yellow Sun, which won the Orange Prize and was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, a New York Times Notable Book, and a People and Black Issues Book Review Best Book of the Year; and Purple Hibiscus, which won the Commonwealth Writers Prize and the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award. Her new book, The Thing Around Your Neck, is a collection of short stories set in Nigeria and in America.
Fae Myenne Ng’s current novel, Steer Toward Rock, which the Chicago Tribune called “relentlessly fierce and unstintingly lovely,” was awarded the 2008 American Book Award and was supported by the Rome Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Lila Wallace Reader’s Digest Writers’ Award, and the Lannan Foundation. Her first novel, Bone, was a finalist for the 1994 PEN/Faulkner Award.
