dc.description.abstract Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is best known for her novel Half of a Yellow Sun (2007), a beautiful and wrenching love story set against the backdrop of the Biafran War in 1960s Nigeria, currently being made into a big budget Hollywood movie. Yet it is her book of short stories, The Thing Around Neck (2010), which most sharply engages questions concerning transmigration, the diaspora, and global movement in twelve pithy but memorable tales. This paper will examine two of those stories, "On Monday of Last Week" and "The Shivering."
