Chimamanda Adichie Featured In New York Times Style Magazine’s “THE GREATS” Issue 2017
The New York Times Style Magazine has released its annual The Greats Issue an innovator of modern theater, an influential auteur, an author turned public intellectual, an artist redefining sculpture, a fashion designer with a painter’s eye, an actor who’s perfected the art of the subtle — and a female rapper who’s reinventing the rules.

Nigerian Novelist/Author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is one of the 7 cover stars featured in this 2017 issue as part of the magazine’s plans to celebrate masters in their fields. Others include rapper Nicki Minaj, the innovator of modern theatre Stephen Sondheim, influential auteur Park Chan-wook, artist Claes Oldenburg, fashion designer Dries Van Noten and actress Amy Adams.
The "Half of a yellow sun" author Chimamanda, talked about growing up in an upper-middle-class home of six children, and how she gave up a career in medicine for her true passion, writing.
Writer Dave Eggers, who profiled her for the magazine, wrote:
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is one of those rarest of people: a celebrated novelist who has also become a leading public intellectual. In a culturally splintered age, her writings — on race, feminism and American privilege — feel bracing, and true.
Adichie was described as “a humanist, on and off the page”. She is well known as a feminist through and through, in reply to a young boy she met in a high school who asked her how she balances life and motherhood she said:
I’m going to answer your question, but you have to promise me that the next time you meet a new father, you ask him how he’s balancing his work and the responsibilities of fatherhood".
