Americanah Book Description :

A searing new novel, at once sweeping and intimate, by the award-winning author of Half of a Yellow Sun: a story of love and race centred around a man and woman from Nigeria who seemed destined to be together--until the choices they are forced to make tear them apart. Ifemelu--beautiful, self-assured--left Nigeria 15 years ago, and now studies in Princeton as a Graduate Fellow. Obinze--handsome and kind-hearted--was Ifemelu's teenage love; he'd hoped to join her in America, but post 9/11 America wouldn't let him in. Years later, when they reunite in Nigeria, neither is the same person who left home. Obinze is the kind of successful "Big Man" he'd scorned in his youth, and Ifemelu has become an "Americanah"--a different version of her former self, one...

A Negritudinal Paradigm Book Description :

Despite the fact that Americanah is Adichie's most talked-about work, the few articles that have been published on this novel have not addressed many of Americannah's most significant issues. To date, none of the short articles, reviews, and scholarly articles considered how this novel is related to the Negritude movement. Exploring Americanah through postcolonial and Negritude lens, this paper examines the implications of the novel's turning point, the protagonist's decision to return home challenges the West's "Master Narrative" and it's imposed culture that erodes African identities and roots. Drawing on the writings of multiple postcolonial writers, I argue that following a Negritudinal paradigm, Adichie's Americanah rejects the projected black i...

Half of a Yellow Sun Book Description :

With her award-winning debut novel, Purple Hibiscus, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie was heralded by the Washington Post Book World as the “21st century daughter” of Chinua Achebe.
