Americanah

Nominated for the Women's Prize for Fiction 2014

SHORTLISTED FOR THE BAILEY'S WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2014. From the award-winning author of 'Half of a Yellow Sun,' a powerful story of love, race and identity. As teenagers in Lagos, Ifemelu and Obinze fall in love. Their Nigeria is under military dictatorship, and people are fleeing the country if they can. The self-assured Ifemelu departs for America. There she suffers defeats and triumphs, finds and loses relationships, all the while feeling the weight of something she never thought of back home: race. Obinze 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. Thirteen years later, Obinze is a wealthy man in a newly democratic Nigeria, while Ifemelu has achieved success as a blogger. But after so long apart and so many changes, will they find the courage to meet again, face to face? Fearless, gripping, spanning three continents and numerous lives, the National Book Critics Circle Award-winning 'Americanah' is a richly told story of love and expectation set in today's globalized world.

Zitat
'An extremely thoughtful, subtly provocative exploration of structural inequality, of different kinds of oppression, of gender roles, of the idea of home. Subtle, but not afraid to pull its punches' Alex Clark, Guardian 'Her new novel is a tour de force ... The artistry with which Adichie keeps her story moving, while animating the complex anxieties in which the characters live and work, is hugely impressive' Mail on Sunday 'A brilliant novel: epic in scope, personal in resonance and with lots to say' Elizabeth Day, Observer 'Her observations about race are fresh and incisive ... Read Americanah to find out - and enjoy the chance to visit three continents, observe a wide array of subcultures and meet complicated and interesting characters - and to go wherever Adichie chooses to take us' Sunday Times 'Adichie writes superb dialogue straight from the mouth of her people ... This is a delicious, important novel from a writer with a great deal to say' The Times 'A brilliant exploration of being African in America ... an urgent and important book, further evidence that its author is a real talent' Sunday Telegraph 'Adichie is terrific on human interactions ... Adichie's writing always has an elegant shimmer to it ... [Americanah is] wise, entertaining and unendingly perceptive' Independent on Sunday
