2003 O. Henry awards
I just found out that my friend Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has made the 2003 O. Henry awards for her story “The American Embassy,” which appeared in the Canadian journal Prism International. You can read an excerpt of the story here.
Here are a few places where you can read the writing of the lovely and amazing Ngozi Adichie: “Half of a Yellow Sun” in the current issue of Zoetrope All-Story (it originally appeared in Lit Pot.) “Heart Is Where the Home Was,” a non-fiction piece for Topic Magazine. And of course the novel Purple Hibiscus, which comes out in October.
