Americanah is a sprawling heart-wrenching love-story told across three countries: Nigeria, the United States of America and the United Kingdom. It’s intense yet warm, honest yet subtle, mixing a range of subjects from racism and hair to religion. The story is told through the lenses of Ifemelu and Obinze, two young high school sweethearts and wraps around their journey to self discovery as they mature to adulthood. Ifemelu is the central character, though not a very likable one and her story is told via flashbacks. Thus, the past is recounted, sandwiched between the present.
