AMERICANAH

À propos

SHORTLISTED FOR THE BAILEY''S WOMEN''S PRIZE FOR FICTION ''A delicious, important novel'' The Times ''Alert, alive and gripping'' Independent ''Some novels tell a great story and others make you change the way you look at the world. Americanah does both.'' Guardian As teenagers in a Lagos secondary school, Ifemelu and Obinze fall in love. Their Nigeria is under military dictatorship, and people are fleeing the country if they can. Ifemelu-beautiful, self-assured-departs for America to study. She suffers defeats and triumphs, finds and loses relationships and friendships, all the while feeling the weight of something she never thought of back home: race. Obinze-the quiet, thoughtful son of a professor-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 writer of an eye-opening blog about race in America. But when Ifemelu returns to Nigeria, and she and Obinze reignite their shared passion-for their homeland and for each other-they will face the toughest decisions of their lives.
Fearless, gripping, spanning three continents and numerous lives, Americanah is a richly told story of love and expectation set in today''s globalized world.
