Whether fiction or nonfiction, I enjoy reading about the new immigrant experience in America.  Winner of the 2013 National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction, Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is an extraordinary novel about a woman named Ifemulu who emigrates from Nigeria to the United States, where she achieves minor celebrity writing a blog about race in America.  Lupita Nyong'o, who won an Oscar for her performance in 12 Years a Slave, will be producing and starring in the film adaptation.
