Staff Pick of the Week – Americanah

Alison - Staff pick of the week

 

Americanah – Chimamanda Ngozi

Exploring modern attitudes to race and femininity, “Americanah” follows Ifemelu andf Obinze from Nigeria to the US and UK and back again. A moving tale of love and loss, Adichie offers a sprawling but beautiful contemplation of identity, both the one you are given and the one you wish to create. – Alison
