Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
When Nigeria begins to fall apart under a military coup, Kambili's father, involved in mysterious ways with the unfolding political crisis, sends Kambili and her brother away to their aunt's. Here she discovers love and a life - dangerous and heathen - beyond the confines of her father's authority.

Review:
"[A] portrayal of the sad state of contemporary African politics--the poverty-inducing corruption, rioting, and uncertainty of basic needs. Like many first novelists, Adichie tries for too much....Nonetheless..., the author has created a compelling narrative--and a surprising punch at the end. A young African voice welcome to American shores."

Kirkus, 08/01/2003

Review:
The author's straightforward prose captures the tragic riddle of a man who has made an unquestionably positive contribution to the lives of strangers while abandoning the needs of those who are closest to him."

John Hartl, New York Times Book Review, 11/23/2003
