Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (GalleyCat)Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has written a new short story for The New York Times Book Review. The piece, entitled “The Arrangements,” has been posted on the publication’s website.

The New York Times Book Review tasked Adichie to write a story about the current United States presidential race. Here’s an excerpt from Adichie’s story on the Trump family:

“Donald admired in his daughter qualities he would not abide in a wife. Not that Melania minded, she told herself, watching them. Ivanka moved like him, loose-limbed. Like him, she was comfortable with display. Like him, she was always selling something. The difference was that you knew what Donald was selling; Ivanka left you wondering.”

The New York Times revealed that “a second work of election fiction” will be published later this Fall. The writer behind that piece intends to focus on the presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton.
