Highly recommended collection of short stories,

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Having read Purple Hibiscus and Half of a Yellow Sun I was greatly looking forward to this collection, and it didn't disappoint.
Although there is a clear thread running through the collection, of Nigerian women with inner strength, they are very definately different stories. Some set in Nigeria, some in America, some featuring rich women, others poor. What shines through the whole collection though is Chimamanda's talent for story telling. One can almost see the colours, smell the smells. Wonderful.
