Reader's Diary #1447- Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: The Arrangements


In "The Arrangements" Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie does the near impossible: she humanizes the Trump clan. This is not to be misunderstood as being pro-Trump or even creating empathy, but it goes a little way in at least explaining why the hell they are the way they are and what it is they're about.

The story, thankfully, revolves around Melania  whereas Trump is as much the spoiled, petulant brat behind closed doors as he is in public.

It would all make for a compelling read except for the sad and angering reality.
