Nigerian Born Author on NYT List of 10 Best Books of 2013

  in 
December 5, 2013

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Americanah was chosen by the editors of The New York Times book review as one of the 10 Best Books of 2013. Her book looks at “race relations from the perspective of a Nigerian immigrant.”

AMERICANAH By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Alfred A. Knopf, $26.95.

By turns tender and trenchant, Adichie’s third novel takes on the comedy and tragedy of American race relations from the perspective of a young Nigerian immigrant. From the office politics of a hair-braiding salon to the burden of memory, there’s nothing too humble or daunting for this fearless writer, who is so attuned to the various worlds and shifting selves we inhabit — in life and online, in love, as agents and victims of history and the heroes of our own stories.
