Winner of a Commonwealth Writers' Prize and an Orange Prize for Fiction, Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie continues the literary tradition of Chinua Achebe, one of her greatest influences, in thisbrilliant collection of stories. Focusing on life's many clashes—tradition with modernity, African cultures with American—Adichie delivers a series of haunting, character-driven tales.

"Adichie's graceful and slicing stories ... beautifully capture the immense resonance of small things as the larger world pitches into incoherence."—Booklist
