Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s “Americanah” is one of The New York Times’ 10 Best Books of 2013

The New York Times recently released its list of The 10 Best Book of 2013, selected by the editors of the publication. Award winning Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s third novel – Americanah

Read the short review;

By turns tender and trenchant, Adichie’s third novel takes on the comedy and tragedy of American race relations from the perspective of a young Nigerian immigrant. From the office politics of a hair-braiding salon to the burden of memory, there’s nothing too humble or daunting for this fearless writer, who is so attuned to the various worlds and shifting selves we inhabit — in life and online, in love, as agents and victims of history and the heroes of our own stories.

Other books on the list include Life After Life by Kate Atkinson, The Sleepwalkers by Christopher Clark and Days of Fire by Peter Baker.
