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 ning©ё℗ðn futuro, Ifemelu y Obinze, dos adolescentes at©ё℗Ưpicos, se enamoran apasionadamente. Como gran parte de su generaci©ё℗đn, saben que antes o despu©ё℗♭s tendr©ё℗Łn que dejar elpa©ё℗Ưs. Obinze siempre ha so©ё℗łado con vivir en Estados Unidos, pero es Ifemelu quien consigue el visado para vivir con su t©ё℗Ưa en Brooklyn y estudiar en la universidad. Mientras Obinze lucha contra la burocracia para reunirse con Ifemelu, ella se encuentra en una Am©ё℗♭rica donde nada es como se imaginaba, comenzando por la importancia del colorde su piel. Todas sus experiencias, desgracias y aventurasconducen a una ©ё℗ðnica pregunta: ©є℗acabar©ё℗Ł convirti©ё℗♭ndose en una ©є℗łamericanah©є℗Ơ? Americanah, que recoge el t©ё℗♭rmino burl©ё℗đn con que los nigerianos se refieren a los que vuelven de Estados Unidos d©ё℗Łndose aires, es una historia de amor a lo largo de tres d©ё℗♭cadas y tres continentes, la historia de c©ё℗đmo 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.
