As we promised our #FridayReads are all focused on page turners by women. You may be familiar Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s best selling Americanah. Or perhaps you know of the author from her call for why we should all be feminists TedTalk thanks to Queen Bey giving her a shoutout in Flawless , and with good reason as it’s a moving sprawling deep novel. But did you know the Nigerian author has a set of short stories?
That Thing Around Your Neck, a work of 12 short stories that showcase her literary skill without the immense commitment of her most notable oeuvre. And we all know short stories make for perfect beach reads. Read them one by one.
They are intense. But intersperse the mind opening heart-rending with a some walks on the beach or dips in the pool and we guarantee you won’t regret it.
