    Con su característico amor por las historias, en este manifiesto Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie hace una llamada a rechazar los relatos únicos. Se trata de su primera TED Talk, un emotivo discurso que han visto más de tres millones de personas. Con rotundidad y calidez, la autora reivindica la riqueza de la infinitud de historias que nos conforman. Ngozi Adichie alerta sobre los peligros de reducir una persona, un país o una cultura a un relato unívoco, pues solo cuando comprendemos que nunca existe una única historia, subraya, recuperamos una especie de paraíso.
