Americanah - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie


This is a book about the challenges of both immigration and return, and of finding the mould that fits you best. The writing is beautiful and measured, the characters vivid and interesting, but it does seem, at times, like a collection of anecdotes sourced from the author and her friends, and it is so long that it sags towards the end. But it certainly makes you think afresh and explore Lagos on Google Maps.
