Novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, who is reviewing President Obama's upcoming memoir for the New York Times, is perhaps best known for her novels "Americanah" and "Half of a Yellow Sun." The latter book was just crowned the "winner of winners" of the Women’s Prize for Fiction. She joins the program from Lagos, Nigeria to reflect on Obama, her own literary success, and a year of racial reckoning.
