  • ""A young woman from Nigeria leaves behind her home and her first love to start a new life in America, only to find her dreams are not all she expected"--"
  • "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."

  • "Lagos, mediados de los noventa. En el marco de una dictadura militar y en una Nigeria que ofrece poco o ningún futuro, Ifemelu y Obinze, dos adolescentes atípicos, se enamoran apasionadamente. Como gran parte de su generación, saben que antes o después tendrán que dejar el país. Obinze siempre ha soñado con vivir en Estados Unidos, pero es Ifemelu quien consigue el visado para vivir con su tía en Brooklyn y estudiar en la universidad. Mientras Obinze lucha contra la burocracia para reunirse con Ifemelu, ella se encuentra en una América donde nada es como se imaginaba, comenzando por la importancia del color de su piel. Todas sus experiencias, desgracias y aventuras conducen a una única pregunta: ¿acabará convirtiéndose en una "americanah"? Americanah, que recoge el término burlón con que los nigerianos se refieren a los que vuelven de Estados Unidos dándose aires, es una historia de amor a lo largo de tres décadas y tres continentes, la historia de cómo se crea una identidad al margen de los dictados de la sociedad y sus prejuicios."
  • ""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"--"

  • "Devetnajstletna Ifemelu odpotuje na študij v Združene države Amerike. Za seboj pusti starše, prijatelje in svojega fanta Obinzeja, ki mu zaradi antiteroristične klime ne uspe pridobiti vizuma. Obinze odpotuje v Veliko Britanijo, tam opravlja ilegalna dela, dokler ga ne deportirajo nazaj v Nigerijo. Ko je Obinze pomemben poslovnež in družinski oče, se Ifemelu po trinajstih letih odloči poiskati svojo srednješolsko ljubezen. Zgodba, ki se odvija po etapah, ima navidezno lahkotno strukturo, toda Adichiejeva nam razkriva, da so vprašanja izbire partnerja, seksa, zaljubljanja, rase, barve kože, in ne nazadnje frizure, ki jo nosimo, ključnega pomena."@sl
  • "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."
