about the book

When Nigeria is shaken by a military coup, Kambili’s father, involved mysteriously in the political crisis, 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.

This extraordinary debut novel from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, author of ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’, is 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.



" Immensely powerful."

- The Times


A sensitive and touching story of a child exposed too early to religious intolerance and the uglier side of the Nigerian state."

- J. M. Coetzee


An intoxicating story that is at once distinctly feminine, African and universal."

- Observer


There’s a quiet confidence about the writing which is very attractive – it isn’t showy, it isn’t brash, but on the contrary both captivating and mature."

- Margaret Forster
