#HaveYouHeard: Chimamanda Says Americanah Is Her ‘Fuck You’ Novel


Chimamanda Adichie was on Huff Post Live recently to discuss her latest book – Americanah.

In explaining how Americanah is different from her other novels, she said ”this is what I like to call my f*ck you novel”.

No, she didn’t write it to diss anyone, according to her, she is sticking her middle finger up ”not to society but in many ways to what the certain idea of propriety was or is, to being a dutiful daughter of literature, to following the rules, you know that sort of things. I just wrote what I wanted to write and I didn’t follow all the rules”
