Who could not be impressed by this year's list of MacArthur Fellows? Of notable interest is Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Her book, Half a Yellow Sun, was vibrant, sad, and portrayed the urban/rural, Western/African, male/female, political/philosophical issues facing growing nations (in particular, the rise and demise of Biafra), with eloquence and force.
