Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Americanah [Deckle Edge] [Hardcover] Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (Author) Hardcover: 496 pages Publisher: Knopf (May 14, 2013) Language: English ISBN-10: 0307271080 ISBN-13: 978-0307271082 From the award-winning author of Half of a Yellow Sun, a dazzling new novel: a story of love and race centered around a young man and woman from Nigeria who face difficult choices and challenges in the countries they come to call home. As teenagers in a Lagos secondary school, Ifemelu and Obinze fall in love. Their Nigeria is under military dictatorship, and people are leaving the country if they can. Ifemelu—beautiful, self-assured—departs for America to study. She suffers defeats and triumphs, finds and loses relationships and friendships, all the while feeling the weight of something she never thought of back home: race. Obinze—the quiet, thoughtful son of a professor—had hoped to join her, but post-9/11 America will not let him in, and he plunges into a dangerous, undocumented life in London.
