And let us rejoice!

It looks as though Americanah is getting a movie adaptation! Yesterday, during a talk atbStylist Magazine‘s Stylist Book Club Inaugural Session, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie confirmed that Lupita Nyong’o has optioned the film rights for the movie!

I’ll give you a few minutes to let that sink in!

Bella Naija, posted the tweet from the book club which confirmed the information:

Lupita Nyong’o has optioned rights for the film version of Americanah, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie confirms #stylistbookclub

— Stylist Magazine (@StylistMagazine) May 29, 2014

If you haven’t read Americanah, run, don’t walk and read it this weekend!

It always comes to this. Sleepy They act like that's the only damn thing they know how to write a movie/show/book about. It's desperate.


*Starred Review* To the women in the hair-braiding salon, Ifemelu seems to have everything a Nigerian immigrant in America could desire, but the culture shock, hardships, and racism she’s endured have left her feeling like she has “cement in her soul.” Smart, irreverent, and outspoken, she reluctantly left Nigeria on a college scholarship. Her aunty Uju, the pampered mistress of a general in Lagos, is now struggling on her own in the U.S., trying to secure her medical license. Ifemelu’s discouraging job search brings on desperation and depression until a babysitting gig leads to a cashmere-and-champagne romance with a wealthy white man. Astonished at the labyrinthine racial strictures she’s confronted with, Ifemelu, defining herself as a “Non-American Black,” launches an audacious, provocative, and instantly popular blog in which she explores what she calls Racial Disorder Syndrome. Meanwhile, her abandoned true love, Obinze, is suffering his own cold miseries as an unwanted African in London. MacArthur fellow Adichie (The Thing around Your Neck, 2009) is a word-by-word virtuoso with a sure grasp of social conundrums in Nigeria, East Coast America, and England; an omnivorous eye for resonant detail; a gift for authentic characters; pyrotechnic wit; and deep humanitarianism. Americanah is a courageous, world-class novel about independence, integrity, community, and love and what it takes to become a “full human being.”
