Notes on Grief

Notes on Grief - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Notes on Grief

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

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, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the bestselling author of Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun and 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. ⁠

‘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’
