You've probably heard about or read this book already. In any case it makes an excellent addition to our first installment of Bookworm! Check out Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's new book Americanah. Here's an excerpt:

"She scoured Nigerian websites, Nigerian profiles on Facebook, Nigerian blogs, and each click brought yet another story of a young person who had recently moved back home, clothed in American or British degrees, to start an investment company, a music production business, a fashion label, a magazine, a fast food franchise. She looked at photographs of these young men and women and felt the dull ache of loss, as though they had prised open her hand and taken something of hers."
