(Born 15 September 1977, Enuugwu, Igboland)
Percipient and award winning writer whose Purple Hibiscus (Harper Perennial, 2005) inaugurates the novel of Africa’s current age of pestilence – the epoch, beginning with the Nigeria-state murder of 3.1 million Igbo people during the genocide of 29 May 1966-12 January 1970 and the subsequent murder of 12 million Africans by genocidist/other ruthless African regimes in further genocide in Rwanda (1994), Zaïre/Democratic Republic of the Congo (variously, since the late 1990s) and Darfur/Nuba Mountains/South Kordofan (all in the Sudan since 2003), and in other armed conflicts across the continent
