From award-winning author Chimamanda Adichie comes an affectionate, yet powerful story that teaches lessons about race and self. Americanah is about the lives of Ifemelu and Obinze, a young Nigerian couple in love, who escape a military-controlled Nigeria but are forced to live on separate continents as a result. Ifemelu is faced with racism in America and Obinze is forced to live a secret life in London. After being away from each other for fifteen years, the couple is reunited in Lagos with a new love and passion for their homeland, but is the love and passion still alive in their relationship?
Americanah has earned Adichie many awards including being one of ten books that are shortlisted for the 2015 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award for 2015.
