Award winning author, Chimamanda Adichie, has expressed her sympathy for men because they lack the experience that comes with giving birth, stating that motherhood is a new emotional plane.
The Half of a Yellow Sun author disclosed this during interview with entertainment publication, Vulture, and spoke on how motherhood has contributed in shaping her writing career positively.
She said, “My baby happened, and it’s important to talk honestly about this, because having her changed a lot. Having a child gets in the way of writing. It does. You can’t own your time the way you used to.”
‘But the other thing that motherhood does and I kind of feel sorry for men that they can’t have this, is open up a new emotional plane that can feed your art,” Adichie said.
