Praise for Chimamanda Adichie and The Thing Around Your Neck
“The stories in The Thing Around Your Neck are so exquisite they grab you by the throat and stop your heart.” —Vanity Fair
“Tragic, defiant, revelatory. . . . Adichie deploys her calm, deceptive prose to portray women in Nigeria and America who are forced to march their wits against threats ranging from marauding guerillas to microwave ovens.” —The Washington Post
“Masterful. . . . These stories once again prove that Adichie is one of those rare writers that any country or any continent would feel proud to claim as its own.” —San Francisco Chronicle
