Overview: Purple Hibiscus

Purple Hibiscus, published in 2003, is Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie�s first novel. Set in post-colonial Nigeria, this book revolves around the life of Kambili Achike; a fifteen-year-old girl stuck in a country shaken by turmoil due to political instability and economic problems. Kambili�s family is a wealthy Catholic lot, dominated by her father, Eugene. The members of the Achike family revere Eugene, not out of love but more due to the physical torture he subjects them to.

As she struggles with the psychological trauma at home, Kambili also has to come to terms with her premature sensibilities. The only consolation in her life is when she lives with Eugene�s sister Ifeoma and her family. Liberal and encouraging, Ifeoma�s household stands in stark contrast to that of Eugene�s. Kambili now finds herself attracted to a young man, as she realises the power of her sexuality for the first time. But will her family ever find happiness in the wake of her father�s brutality?

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has constantly amazed the global audience with themes of feminism, social inequality, and gender bias, which are rampant in her native homeland of Nigeria. Her writing has struck a chord with many, forcing them to get out of their traditional mould and embrace change. Rich in narrative and enjoyable, her famous works include books such as Half of a Yellow Sun and Americanah. Adichie is also known for her immensely powerful short stories, which are included in The Thing Around Your Neck. Poignant and often satirical, her stories are references to the fickle ambitions of modern society, where love and compassion take a back seat. She has won numerous awards and is considered the brightest novelist of her time.
