  • "Die große Liebe von Ifemelu und Obinze beginnt im Nigeria der neunziger Jahre. Dann trennen sich ihre Wege: Während die selbstbewusste Ifemelu in Princeton studiert, strandet Obinze als illegaler Einwanderer in London. Nach Jahren kehrt Ifemelu als bekannte Bloggerin von Heimweh getrieben in die brodelnde Metropole Lagos zurück, wo Obinze mittlerweile mit seiner Frau und Tochter lebt. Sie treffen sich wieder und stehen plötzlich vor einer Entscheidung, die ihr Leben auf den Kopf stellt."

  • "As teenagers in a Lagos secondary school, Ifemelu and Obinze fall in love. Their Nigeria is under military dictatorship, and people are leaving the country if they can. Ifemelu departs for America to study. She suffers defeats and achieves triumphs, all the while feeling the weight of something she never thought of back home: race. Obinze had hoped to join her, but post-9/11 America will not let him in, and he plunges into undocumented life in Britain."
  • "De levens van een jong Nigeriaans stel gaan steeds meer uit elkaar lopen nadat zij naar Amerika is geëmigreerd."
  • ""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"--"@en
