Abstract

In Half of a Yellow Sun (2006), Adichie relives the war. Death is at the very center of this novel clearly haunted by parents’ and relatives’ memories of the northern massacres of 1966, whose graphic descriptions and distressing details echo through the pages and are branded into its fabric.
