Beschreibung

A new edition of the bestselling novel which won the Orange Broadband Prize for Fiction in 2007, published to tie in with a new film adaptation. The movie stars Thandie Newton, Dominic Cooper and Chiwetel Ejiofor, and the book has sold more than 550,000 copies in paperback in the UK. 'Heartbreaking, funny, exquisitely written and, without doubt, a literary masterpiece and a classic.' "Daily Mail" *Also appeared in July Buyer's Notes*

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie was born in Nigeria in 1977. Her first novel 'Purple Hibiscus' was published in 2003 and was longlisted for the Booker Prize. Her second novel 'Half of a Yellow Sun' won the 2007 Orange Prize for Fiction. Her short story collection, 'The Thing Around Your Neck', was published to critical acclaim in 2009. Her work has been selected by the Commonwealth Broadcasting Association and the BBC Short Story Awards, has appeared in various literary publications, including Zoetrope and The Iowa Review. She won a MacArthur 'genius' grant in 2009, and in 2010 appeared on the New Yorker's list of the best 20 writers under 40. Her third novel, 'Americanah', was published to widespread critical acclaim in 2013. She lives in Nigeria.

'Heartbreaking, funny, exquisitely written and, without doubt, a literary masterpiece and a classic.' Daily Mail 'Stunning. This novel is an immense achievement.' Observer 'Here is a new writer endowed with the gift of ancient storytellers.' Chinua Achebe 'I look with awe and envy at this young woman from Africa who is recording the history of her country. She is fortunate - and we, her readers, are even luckier.' Edmund White 'A magnificent novel.' Independent 'Absolutely awesome. One of the best books I've ever read.' Judy Finnigan 'Vividly written, thrumming with life...a remarkable novel. In its compassionate intelligence as in its capacity for intimate portraiture, this novel is a worthy successor to such twentieth-century classics as Chinua Achebe's "Things Fall Apart" and V. S. Naipaul's "A Bend in the River".' Joyce Carol Oates 'I wasted the last fifty pages, reading them far too greedily and fast, because I couldn't bear to let go...It is a magnificent second novel - and can't fail to find the readership it deserves and demands.' Margaret Forster '[Deserves] a place alongside such works as Pat Barker's "Regeneration" trilogy and Helen Dunmore's depiction of the Leningrad blockade, "The Siege".' Guardian 'Adichie uses language with relish. She infuses her English with a robust poetry.' Helen Dunmore, The Times

Absolutely stunning and heartbreaking

When I started reading this book, I had absolutely no idea what it would be about. I had read all other books by Adichie and loved every single one of them, so I figured this would be no different.

When I started reading this book, I had absolutely no idea what it would be about. I had read all other books by Adichie and loved every single one of them, so I figured this would be no different. So when the symbol of the "half of a yellow sun" was finally mentioned in the book and revealed the central theme of the story, namely Biafra's war for independence, I was completely surprised and unprepared. The book covers two main timelines: the early sixties before the war and the late sixties when the war starts and ultimately ends. Each timeline manages to generate its own importance through the depth and personal struggles of the characters. And it is in part only because of the acute description of life before the war, that it becomes so painfully obvious what was and is lost during the war. Through her fantastic story-telling abilities, Adichie creates characters that resonate not only because they are likeable, but because they are inherently human. This book is brilliant from the very first to the very last page and will surely occupy my mind for a long time.

Die Sechziger Jahre in Nigeria - erlebt von zwei ungleichen Schwestern. In der Oberschicht behütet aufgewachsen, erleben sie den Biafra-Krieg und die Pogrome gegen ihre Volksgruppe.
