Chinua Achebe at 82: “We Remember Differently”, By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Excellent piece by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

I have met Chinua Achebe only three times. The first, at the National Arts Club in Manhattan, I joined the admiring circle around him. A gentle-faced man in a wheelchair.
“Good evening, sir. I’m Chimamanda Adichie,” I said, and he replied, mildly,  “I thought you were running away from me.”
