Chimamanda Adichie’s novel, Half of a Yellow Sun is soon to be introduced to audiences on the big screen. Speaking at a recent book signing in Australia, Chimamanda noted that she would not be involved in any aspect of the movie production. She did note that she expects that the storyline will remain true to the book as the production team that produced ‘The Last King of Scotland’ will be producing this film.

Chimamanda’s achievements and accolades continue to grow and this year has been a particularly rewarding one. Chinua Achebe has noted that she is truly gifted; she won the prestigious Orange Prize for Fiction for Half of a Yellow Sun in 2007; the novel received accolades from the literary world including mentions in CNN and the Washington Post. She won a MacArthur Foundation fellowship, popularly known as a “genius grant”, which came with an obligation-free annual grant of $100,000 for a five-year period; and somehow found time to author a new book, ‘The Thing Around Your Neck‘ (a collection of stories).
