Americanah, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie ( new edition 2023)
A gorgeous new edition of the coming of age classic from 2013.
Vogue Ifemelu and Obinze are young and in love when they depart military-ruled Nigeria. In America, Ifemelu suffers defeats and triumphs, finds and loses relationships, all the while feeling the weight of something she never thought of back home: race. Meanwhile, Obinze plunges into a dangerous, undocumented life in London.
Fifteen years later, when they reunite in a newly democratic Nigeria, and reignite their passion for each other and for their homeland, they face the hardest decision of their lives. Fearless, gripping, spanning three continents and numerous lives, the National Book Critics Circle Award-winning Americanah is a literary masterpiece, and one of the defining books of the decade. A brilliant novel: epic in scope, personal in resonance and with lots to say.
