    One of The New York Times's Ten Best Books of the Year

    Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction

    An NPR "Great Reads" Book, a Chicago Tribune Best Book, a Washington PostNotable Book, a Seattle Times Best Book, an Entertainment Weekly Top Fiction Book, aNewsday Top 10 Book, and a Goodreads Best of the Year pick.

    A powerful, tender story of race and identity by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the award-winning author ofHalf of a Yellow Sun.

    Ifemelu and Obinze are young and in love when they depart military-ruled Nigeria for the West. Beautiful, self-assured Ifemelu heads for America, where despite her academic success, she is forced to grapple with what it means to be black for the first time. Quiet, thoughtful Obinze had hoped to join her, but with post-9/11 America closed to him, he instead plunges into a dangerous, undocumented life in London. Fifteen years later, they reunite in a newly democratic Nigeria, and reignite their passion—for each other and for their homeland.
