Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Half of a Yellow Sun has topped a list of the last decade’s winners of the Baileys Women’s Fiction Prize.
“Best of the best” is part of the celebrations to mark 20 years of the annual £30,000 prize.
The Nigerian author won in 2007 for her story, her second novel, set during the Biafran War of the 1960s.
The 38-year-old said of the prize, Over the years it’s brought wonderful literature to a wide readership that might not have found many of the books. I feel I am in very good company.
