Chimamanda Adichie, will embark on a national book tour shortly after the Nigerian edition of her latest work, the highly anticipated novel titled Americanah is released on April 21, 2013 in Lagos.
The tour will take Adichie to major cities across Nigeria. The new novel is the fourth published book by the author and her third novel after the Orange Prize winning ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’ and ‘Purple Hibiscus’, which also won the Commonwealth Writers Prize in 2003.
Americanah has been described as a fearless and towering novel set in three different countries and continents: Nigeria, England and America. Just like Adichie’s other works, it boldly addresses issues that are serious and mundane, such as love, race, home, hair, Obama, immigration, and self-invention.
