The Thing Around Your Neck Paperback Jun 1 2010 By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
From Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the Orange Prize-winning author of "Half of a Yellow Sun", come twelve dazzling stories in which she turns her penetrating eye on the ties that bind men and women, parents and children, Nigeria and the West. Searing and profound, suffused with beauty, sorrow and longing, this collection is a resounding confirmation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's prodigious storytelling powers. This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60 per cent of the author's work and as low as 30 per cent with characters and plotlines removed.
