i first picked up Americanah at the recommendation of a friend. I wasn’t familiar with the author, Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche, or any of her previous work, and I dove in without knowing quite what to expect.
What I found was a poignant, incredibly candid novel about race, love, and the sense of isolation one feels not just when arriving in a new place, but also when returning home. It’s funny and biting and sometimes dark, but always completely genuine.
