Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is back in stores soon with her latest release, “Zikora“.

“Zikora,” which would be her first official piece of fiction in over seven years, is a short story about a Nigerian lawyer living in Washington, D.C. who has been abandoned by her highly-celebrated partner after learning that she’s pregnant.

The story follows Zikora’s life as she faces losing and being abandoned by her lover in such a life changing moment, as well as a tense relationship with her “helpful” mother who comes to help her prepare for her journey into motherhood.

In an excerpt from the short story, we gain a deeper understanding of how tumultuous the relationship between mother and daughter truly is.

Zikora will be available on October 27 as part of an Amazon Original series.
