I have 3 Favourite Books. The first is the Bible, which is also the most widely read book worldwide. No surprises there. The second is ‘Things Fall Apart’ by Chinua Achebe, creatively depicting a post- colonial world. The third is ‘Half a Yellow Sun’ which is a bit of everything. Serious issues such as culture and politics with romance and history mixed in. The film has already had the privilege of being announced as part of the 2013 Toronto Film Festival.’Half of a Yellow Sun’ will also be opening the Africa International Film Festival in November 2013.
My family are crazy about this book. I cannot wait to share this first snippet with them too! The funny thing is I actually met Chiwetel Ejiofor shortly before the whole casting started. Nice guy. It won’t be long now.
