THE THING AROUND YOUR NECK Author : Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
From the Orange Prize-winning author of `Half of a Yellow Sun’ come twelve dazzling stories that turn a penetrating eye on the ties that bind men and women, parents and children, Nigeria and the West. In ‘A Private Experience’, a medical student hides from a violent riot with a poor Muslim woman whose dignity and faith force her to confront the realities and fears she’s been pushing away. In ‘Tomorrow Is Too Far’, a woman unlocks the devastating secret that surrounds her brother’s death.
The young mother at the centre of ‘Imitation’ finds her comfortable life threatened when she learns that her husband back in Lagos has moved his mistress into their home. And the title story depicts the choking loneliness of a Nigerian girl who moves to an America that turns out to be nothing like the country she expected; though falling in love brings her desires nearly within reach, a death in her homeland forces her to re-examine them. Searing and profound, suffused with beauty, sorrow and longing, this collection is a resounding confirmation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s prodigious storytelling powers.

A marriage of dolls book by J.B OmukangalaKShs1,090.00Add to cart
A Marriage of Dolls is a hilarious account of events that happen in most families and marriages.
The novel points out various challenges faced by both men and women when choosing a life partner and humorously shows ups and downs in new marriages before the couple finally understands each other and learns to live together and solve their issues amicably. The dramatic events in this book are rib-cracking and portray the partners as somewhat juvenile and crazy, hence the title.
The book also explores various cultural practices, beliefs and values among the Ameru, Luhya, Akamba, Maa and Agikuyu.
A Marriage of Dolls is the second part of Torn Between, which is the author’s first book by JB Omukungala
