Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie yet again shows us just why she’s such a prolific author! As she has done in her previous works, she’s written a captivating, relevant, exceptional work of fiction.
Americanah follows the life of Ifemelu. A young Nigerian girl who leaves Nigeria for the Unites
States in search for greener pastures.
Through her , Chimamnda adroitly explores the labyrinth of race,
love, gender, culture, governance, among many others.
She writes in this book, in such a way that the complex seems so simple to understand. It’s an easy
read, nearly impossible to put down and refreshingly therapeutic for the mind!
And by the way, Kenya’s award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o is working on getting a screen
adaptation if this book!
