“The Thing Around your Neck, with its warm and sympathetic heroines and its finely cadenced un-American English prose, demonstrates that she is keeping faith with her talent and with her country." Lindsay Duguid, Sunday Times
"The powerful themes close to Adichie’s heart shine through, but never over-shadow writing of clarity and brilliance." Aminatta Forna, Guardian
