Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie wins PEN Pinter prize
 

Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has won this year's PEN Pinter Prize.
Named in memory of playwright Harold Pinter, the prize celebrates his respect for British and Commonwealth writers who take an "unflinching, unswerving" look at the world.
The judges praised Adichie's "sophisticated" approach to "gender, race and global inequality".
The Half of a Yellow Sun author described the award as an "honour".
"I admired Harold Pinter's talent, his courage, his lucid dedication to telling his truth," she said.
