Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

"This novel should be required reading for every American. It's a stark reminder of how racism worms its way into nearly every part of culture. But who knew a novel on racism could be so entertaining?! Just a phenomenally good novel."  - Recommended by Greg

Ifemelu and Obinze are young and in love when they depart military-ruled Nigeria for the West. Beautiful, self-assured Ifemelu heads for America, where despite her academic success, she is forced to grapple with what it means to be black for the first time. Quiet, thoughtful Obinze had hoped to join her, but with post-9/11 America closed to him, he instead plunges into a dangerous, undocumented life in London. Fifteen years later, they reunite in a newly democratic Nigeria, and reignite their passion--for each other and for their homeland.
