Zitat
'An extremely thoughtful, subtly provocative exploration of structural inequality, of different kinds of oppression, of gender roles, of the idea of home. Subtle, but not afraid to pull its punches' Alex Clark, Guardian 'Her new novel is a tour de force ... The artistry with which Adichie keeps her story moving, while animating the complex anxieties in which the characters live and work, is hugely impressive' Mail on Sunday 'A brilliant novel: epic in scope, personal in resonance and with lots to say' Elizabeth Day, Observer 'Her observations about race are fresh and incisive ... Read Americanah to find out - and enjoy the chance to visit three continents, observe a wide array of subcultures and meet complicated and interesting characters - and to go wherever Adichie chooses to take us' Sunday Times 'Adichie writes superb dialogue straight from the mouth of her people ... This is a delicious, important novel from a writer with a great deal to say' The Times 'A brilliant exploration of being African in America ... an urgent and important book, further evidence that its author is a real talent' Sunday Telegraph 'Adichie is terrific on human interactions ... Adichie's writing always has an elegant shimmer to it ... [Americanah is] wise, entertaining and unendingly perceptive' Independent on Sunday
