Half of a Yellow Sun is Chimamanda’s illumination of a seminal moment in African history: Biafra’s struggle to establish an independent republic in southeastern Nigeria during the late 1960s.


We experience this tumultuous decade alongside five unforgettable characters: Ugwu, a 13-yearold houseboy who works for Odenigbo, a university professor full of revolutionary zeal; Olanna, the professor’s young mistress; and Richard, a shy young English-man infatuated with Olanna’s wilful twin sister, Kainene.


This book is a tremendously evocative novel of promise, hope, and the disappointment of war.
