Chimamanda is a Nigerian novelist who commands a decent following from a diverse pool of readership across the globe. Those who are passionate about or interested in African narratives, presumably, add to her vast followership.
Her first Novel, ‘Purple Hibiscus’, was awarded the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize in the category of Best First Book from Africa besides receiving critical acclaim. She affirms her relations with feminism in her recent writing, ‘We Should All Be Feminists’. She bears the tag ‘feminist’, a name she has willingly owned.
Her writing is often detailed, descriptive and woven in a way that relays often ignored pertinent issues such as marginalization of the female gender. Notably, Adichie’s writing is packaged in humor probably to harmlessly shove her thoughts in her readers’ minds—her thoughts on feminism. The manner in which she brings out social issues in her writing is more relatable as she never forgets to recount her personal experiences that touch on themes she writes about.
