Chimamanda Adichie on being unprepared for grief and how to deal with ‘pain of absence’


Correction: This video has been updated to reflect that James Nwoye Adichie died of complications from kidney failure, not liver failure. We regret the error.

The last year has been one of grief and sorrow for so many around the world. A new book by acclaimed author Chimamanda Adichie explores her recent personal loss after the death of her beloved father, and the multi-faceted grief she “was not prepared for.” Jeffrey Brown talked to her from her family home in Lagos, Nigeria for our arts and culture series, CANVAS.
