    Chimamanda is a terrific writer, with almost preternatural powers of description. A natural story teller. Like Achebe and JK Rowling, I can read her work over and over without getting bored.
    She deserves every honour she gets

    I just love this woman and I love that she uses her full Igbo names. And some people were telling me I should have given my kids English names so Americans can pronounce them. You see when you are great, everyone will learn to say the names.
