Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie opens up about loss and grief in new book – Times of India


Feminist-author-speaker Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie shared the news of her upcoming book on February 12, 2021. Adichie, who is best known for novels ‘Americanah’ and ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’, has written a powerful essay on loss and grief titled ‘Notes on Grief’ which will be out this year.

Announcing the news and sharing the details of the upcoming book, Adichie posted on her official Facebook page:

“Grief is a cruel kind of education. You learn how ungentle mourning can be, how full of anger. You learn how glib condolences can feel. You learn how much grief is about language, the failure of language and the grasping for language,” she writes. The book’s blurb reads, “On 10 June 2020, the scholar James Nwoye Adichie died suddenly in Nigeria… In this tender and powerful essay, expanded from the original New Yorker text, his daughter, a self-confessed daddy’s girl, remembers her beloved father. ‘Notes on Grief’ is at once a tribute to a long life of grace and wisdom, the story of a daughter’s fierce love for a parent, and a revealing examination of the layers of loss and the nature of grief.”

Published by Fourth Estate, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s ‘Notes on Grief’ is expected to be released on May 13, 2021.
