[Ebook] ➡ The Arrangements By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – Writerscompany.co.uk

The Arrangements For months now nearly every piece of fiction I ve read has a character in it that reminds me of America s presidential candidate, the infamous Donald Trump, perhaps because he is larger than life Earlier this year, the New York Times commissioned short stories about the election, and then published this one by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie in their newspaper available to read anytime by subscribers I have just learned that Penguin Random House is publishing an audio version that will available for download October 25th.Adichie mentioned in an interview that she patterned the story on Woolf s Mrs Dalloway, but my sense of Adichie s story is far Shakespearean, or Greek tragedy ish Not having read Mrs Dalloway recently, perhaps I am missing an obvious parallel Adichie makes the Trump women clever as foxes, which was my impression as well Not only do they work hard at their beauty, which anyone with any sense will realize is an obvious advantage they are by now well skilled at controlling, but they are astonishingly resilient and forgiving, which only comes from understanding, which comes with a certain amount of knowing Cle Another one of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie s shorter works, originally written for the New York Times, The Arrangements takes a fictional look at the life of Melania Trump I was confused by this short story Throughout, the author had some interesting ideas, mostly surrounding the attitude of Melania towards the Trump children, however I feel that it didn t seem to have a clear message or purpose Written d This short story was commissioned as a piece to be reflective of or inspired by the current race for The White House in the U.S This story is a fictional imagining of Melania Trump s life and features her husband Donald and his daughter Ivanka among others And I honestly don t really know how I feel about it On one hand I feel almost voyeuristic in how this short st Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a wordsmith of the highest order.Here she manages to make the world s most likeable family almost sympathetic without once condoning a thing She humanises, allows for empathy, and still doesn t detract from the fact that they Virginia Woolf and Donald Trump, the perfect couple Say what now A belated mention of this recent brief work, The Arrangements, by the author of Americanah, in the 3 July issue of the New York Times Book Review In her new short story, Adichie has rewritten Virginia Woolf, with Melania Trump Mrs Donald Trump in the role of Mrs Dalloway in Mrs Dalloway The Book Review states that for the first time ever, it had commissioned an original short story, addressing anything about this election season Adichie chose Mrs Trump and, in reality, Mr Trump Adichie s The Arrangements consists of the thoughts of, and conversations with, Melania Trump, combining Virginia Woolf with the headlines and news stories of today She thus introduces us to the imagined inner life of the mostly silent wife of the much praised and subtle, funny, human story from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie about Donald Trump and his campaign as seen from the eyes of Melania The voices of each of the characters Melania, Ivanka and the Donald himself is pitch perfect I ve h We ve spent this year being bombarded every few hours by Trump and his mishandling of being leader of the free world I think I just threw up a little in my mouth saying that sentence and his need to do everything via Twitter And what makes this fictional account of a standard day in the Trump presidency so terrifying is all of it seems to be so realistic It s almost as though Adichie was sat in the corner of the room, taking notes on everything that ran through Melania s mind It s a very short story, but it packs a real mighty punch, exploring how Melania views those around her, particularly the children of the man himself Moreover, it runs a long, dark undertone beneath this supposedly ordinary text, particularly when concerning Ivanka, who has never struck me as a good person I really hope that Adichie may lend her skills to perhaps writing an entire full length novel on this point of view Mostly because it ll make Trump angry and that makes me A short story told from the perspective of Melania Trump, about her adversarial relationship with Ivanka, who is secretly sabotaging Donald s presidential campaign It s a fun read with surprisingly multi dimensional characters aside from Donald really, who is as flat as his typical caricatures , but not so good that I would recommend it to anyone in the year 2017 the NYT compared it to Virginia Woolf s Mrs Dallo Popular Ebook, The Arrangements Author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book The Arrangements , Essay By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You
