Half of A Yellow Sun

About Half of A Yellow Sun

An epic story of love and civil war set in Nigeria during the 1960s, Half of a Yellow Sun recounts the lives of three characters caught up in events larger than themselves: Ugwu, a young houseboy working for an idealistic university professor; Olanna, the professor's mistress; and Richard, a British expatriate in love with Olanna's twin sister, Kainene. As the war escalates, their relationships are thrown into jeopardy when Richard spends one drunken night with Olanna.

With Half of a Yellow Sun, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie firmly establishes herself as a most powerful storyteller and humanist, "the 21st-century daughter of Chinua Achebe", according to The Washington Post Book World. The book has won numerous awards and accolades worldwide, including the Orange Broadband Prize for Fiction in 2007.
