Zwölf Stories der jungen nigerianischen Bestsellerautorin Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Nigeria – Nordamerika: Zwei Welten, getrennt durch eine scheinbar unüberwindbare Kluft. Die nigerianische Heimat schwebt zwischen Tradition und Moderne, wird bedroht von Gewalt und Korruption. In Amerika hingegen hält das Leben nicht, was es verspricht. An den Rändern beider Kulturen werden die prekären Bande zwischen Kindern und Eltern, die verborgenen Vibrationen zwischen Männern und Frauen aufgespürt: Die Liebe wird in der Distanz auf die Probe gestellt und das Sich-Wiederfinden ist schwieriger als erwartet. In der Familie schleichen sich Spannungen ein, wenn der Strudel des Lebens ihre Mitglieder mitreißt. Diese sinnlichen und gleichsam klaren Einblicke in die Wirren des nigerianischen, in erster Linie aber des menschlichen Lebens überhaupt, machen diese Geschichten nicht nur zu Erzählungen einer außergewöhnlichen jungen afrikanischen Stimme, sondern zu ganz großer Literatur. »Chimamanda Adichie ist eine neue Autorin, die mit der Gabe der alten Geschichtenerzähler gesegnet ist.« Chinua Achebe

One night in Salem Massachusetts, a group of girls are caught dancing in the woods by Reverend Parris. His own daughter falls into a coma soon after, and the town is ablaze with talks of witchcraft. The Reverend sends for Reverend Hale to examine the girl for witchcraft. Hale concludes that the town of Salem is in fact engulfed in witchcraft as one by one the girls accuse other townspeople of communing with the devil. A trial ensues causing those accused to either deny these allegations, or confess, thus accusing someone else. This cycle finally culminates in the death of several innocent townsfolk.
