Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is considered to be one of the most talented writers on the international scene, as the author of contemporary classics such as Half of a Yellow Sun, Americanah and the essay We Should All Be Feminists. Her most recent work is entitled Notes on Grief, and in it the author talks about her mourning after the death of her father, setting her thoughts within the context of the global pandemic, obliged to grieve at a distance since she was unable to leave the United States while her father was dying on another continent. This moving work will resonate with the experiences of millions of people around the world, at this moment of great trauma when grief, loss and death have become an even greater presence for so many people all over the planet. In conversation with writer Santiago Roncagliolo.
