This is the third book I've read by Adichie, and my favorite so far. The characters in the stories are fascinating individuals and no two stories are the same. The author sets the stories in both the city and the suburbs, and in the liminal places where people are often invisible. Like the best short story collections, I wanted more time with each set of characters, but was also satisfied with the fragments I was fed.

Elegantly written collection of authentic short stories. Easy to devour while gaining insight to culture shifting and the African diaspora.
