Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s ‘Americanah’ Wins The One Book, One New York Contest


Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s book, Americanah is the winner of a contest launched by the citywide community reading program, One Book, One New York.

The idea of the programme is to make everyone in the city read the same book at the same time.

The contest nominated five award-winning books in New York area and invited New Yorkers to pick the book they want millions of residents to read at the same time.

Published in 2013, Adichie’s novel won a National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction and was named one of The New York Times’ “Ten Best Books of the Year.”

The book tells the story of a young Nigerian woman, Ifemelu, who left her country to the United States to attend university.

The novel traces Ifemelu’s life in both countries, threaded by her love story with high school classmate, Obinze.

It was announced last year that the book will  be adapted into a film with star Lupita Nyong’o and David Oyelowo as the leads.
