Chimamanda Adichie: The daughter of postcolonial theory

The ripples after the stone has been thrown in the pond by the Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie still widen. In an interview she gave the topics of bookshops in Nigeria and the position of post-colonial literature a stage and people picked it up. 

In this article the South African academic (at Stellenbosch University) writes about these rimples. An interesting thought: Is there one story in France? When one lady asks a question about the presence of bookshops in Nigeria it does not follow that all other French people could ask the very same awkward question.
