Chimamanda Adichie is offering the world another book. I’m placing it in my to-be-read pile. Her work is refreshing, precise, full, and intelligent. Both her novels and her collection of stories leave me with a broader world, and I think of her as a gift to the reading public.
If you’re looking for something to read, Americanah is a good option after next month. I read of the book that a part of its appeal is “its immense, uncontained and beating heart”. Don’t you love looking forward to a favorite author’s next work?
It looks like Ms. Adichie will work into her novel everything from cultural analysis and race to loving long-distance and the politics of black hair. Familiarize yourself with Adichie’s earlier work by stopping by her website.
