All right, I just listened to Nigerian novelist, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, on The Diane Rehm Show. She sounded pret-ty ner-dy. They are also calling her Chinua Achebe's "daughter."
That's pretty much all I need. But I'll definitely have to pick up a couple of her books to find out if she is, indeed, Nerd Crush-worthy. If any of you know anything about the sister, please let me know. The Nerd Crush is a weighty office. We have to make sure our nominees are up to the duty.
