Description

One of The New York Times Book Review's Ten Best Books of the Year

From the award-winning author of Half of a Yellow Sun, a dazzling new novel: a story of love and race centered around a young man and woman from Nigeria who face difficult choices and challenges in the countries they come to call home. As teenagers in a Lagos secondary school, Ifemelu and Obinze fall in love. Their Nigeria is under military dictatorship, and people are leaving 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. 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, at once darkly funny and tender, spanning three continents and numerous lives, Americanah is a richly told story set in today's globalized world: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's most powerful and astonishing novel yet.

display_description Lagos, mediados de los noventa. En el marco de una dictadura militar y en una Nigeria que ofrece poco o ningún futuro, Ifemelu y Obinze, dos adolescentes atípicos, se enamoran apasionadamente. Como gran parte de su generación, saben que antes o después tendrán que dejar el país. Obinze siempre ha soñado con vivir en Estados Unidos, pero es Ifemelu quien consigue el visado para vivir con su tía en Brooklyn y estudiar en la universidad. Mientras Obinze lucha contra la burocracia para reunirse con Ifemelu, ella se encuentra en una América donde nada es como se imaginaba, comenzando por la importancia del color de su piel. Todas sus experiencias, desgracias y aventuras conducen a una única pregunta: ¿acabará convirtiéndose en una "americanah"? Americanah, que recoge el término burlón con que los nigerianos se refieren a los que vuelven de Estados Unidos dándose aires, es una historia de amor a lo largo de tres décadas y tres continentes, la historia de cómo se crea una identidad al margen de los dictados de la sociedad y sus prejuicios. A young woman from Nigeria leaves behind her home and her first love to start a new life in America, only to find her dreams are not all she expected.
