Half of a Yellow Sun
If you haven't yet discovered this novelist, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, whose first book Purple Hibiscus was short-listed for the Orange Prize, link on her website right away. Run out and buy Half of a Yellow Sun. I consumed it on the plane from Bangkok to D.C. -- and am devourly it nightly as I fight to go to sleep. She is a beautiful women who writes in a beautiful, tragic voice about the forgotten war of Nigeria and Biafra.
