#travelbookclub discusses Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

  • This month #travelbookclub read Americanah, which was quite a change from our usual choices.

    It tells the story of a teenage couple Ifemelu and Obinze from Nigeria, who plan to move to America together.

    Unfortunately circumstances mean that while Ifemelu makes it to the US, Obinze is not able to join her and instead plunges into undocumented life in Britain.

    The book tackles issues of race, immigration, relationships and ‘home’.
