Chimamanda Ngozi to release new book in May

The new book was written in honour of her late father


Chimamanda Ngozi is set to release a new book on May 11th via her publisher Knopf Publishing. The award-winning author’s new book titled Notes on Grief first appeared in the New York Times as an essay.

Adichie’s father, James Nwoye Adichie, died late last year of kidney disease amid the global pandemic.

Her new book explores the anger and loneliness that accompanies sudden loss and is ultimately a work of remembrance, meditation and hope. 

Chimamanda has often credited her father for the stories of the Biafran war that inspired her novel Half of a Yellow Sun.

Last year, Chimamanda won the “Women’s prize for fiction” in 2007 and was chosen as the “Winner of winners” in a public vote in which more than 8,500 people voted in 2020.
