Literature is a big house with many rooms

Did you know that Literature is a big house with many rooms? You need to hear this. A beautiful interview conducted by two beautiful, smart women. Okay, don't tell me that I'm already melting like butter. Blame it on brains. But, you've got to hear this.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is the author of Purple Hibiscus (2003), Half of a Yellow Sun (2006) and The Thing Around Your Neck (2009). Born in Enugu, Nigeria and brought up in the University town of Nsukka, her writings approach race, gender and identity with a distinctly perceptive style. Her works are deeply connected to Nigeria, articulating different experiences and producing a complex impression of history and violence.
