Americanah

Author: Chimamanda Adichie
Genre: Fiction
Ifemelu and Obinze are young and in love when they depart military-ruled Nigeria for the West. Beautiful, self-assured Ifemelu heads for America, where despite her academic success, she is forced to grapple with what it means to be black for the first time. Quiet, thoughtful Obinze had hoped to join her, but with post-9/11 America closed to him, he instead plunges into a dangerous, undocumented life in London. Fifteen years later, they reunite in a newly democratic Nigeria, and reignite their passion—for each other and for their homeland.

A powerful, tender story of race and identity by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the award-winning author of Half of a Yellow Sun.

O ma ga, amma like, assomeh. That was supposed to mean oh my God, I'm like, I'm so mad. That was from someone who wants to blend into America in the book Americanah. Chimamanda was so meticuolus in exposing the life so many thought would be perfect outside an African Nation. It was never easy for Ifemelu. The book is a great lesson for all, and most importantly a must read

“Fearless. A towering achievement…From the place of Africans in the race politics in America, to love across continents, AMERICANAH dares to bring us a world of a confident and self-made woman making her way in these complicated times. This is the Africa of our future. Sublime, powerful and the most political of Chimamanda’s novels. She continues to blaze the way forward.”
