With effortless grace, celebrated author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie illuminates a seminal moment in modern African history- Biafra's impassioned struggle to establish an independent republic in southeastern Nigeria during the late 1960s. We experience this tumultuous decade alongside five unforgettable characters- Ugwu, a thirteen-year-old houseboy who works for Odenigbo, a university professor full of revolutionary zeal- Olanna, the professor's beautiful young mistress who has abandoned her life in Lagos for a dusty town and her lover's charm- and Richard, a shy young Englishman infatuated with Olanna's willful twin sister Kainene. Half of a Yellow Sun is a tremendously evocative novel of the promise, hope, and disappointment of the Biafran war.
