Americanah by Chimamanda Ngoze Adiche
A completely dazzling book, from the scope of its ambition to the sparkling dialogue to the warm and witty portraits of its main characters, two Nigerian teenagers who confront issues of race, identity and belonging in America and the UK.
Spanning three continents and numerous lives, Americanah is a love-story set in today's globalised world.
Adiche won the Orange Prize with her last novel, Half of a Yellow Sun; she is a writer of huge talent who just keeps getting better.
Unmissable - and another author to look forward to - Chimamanda will be our book club guest author in April 2014.
