While you are at it, check out Ms Adichie’s new story, Birdsong, on The New Yorker website.
Each month, The New Yorker invites a writer to read something from the archives of the magazine. This month, Ms Adichie reads Jamaica Kincaid’s Figures in the Distance, first published in the May 9, 1983 issue of The New Yorker. It is a great choice. Check out the podcast here.
