Life’s Journey Illustrated In Americanah



"Some beautiful paths can't be discovered without getting lost" -E.Ozan


 As September Set debuts, we not only want to share our love for reading; it is important that we highlight a story that speaks to the dynamics of relationships, personal impacts of global issues and cultural nuances, as well as, the significance of personal growth attributed to life's journey. We find this in Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche. In this beautifully written novel, we are reminded that we didn't just wake up like this as we witness characters who get lost in the world and find their way home. A rich coming of age story, full of highs, lows, laughs and tears that provokes thought and feeling in the reader. We at Septembet Set appreciate a tale that illustrates the personal choice to approach the world with courage and openness to truly live and discover one's self, and Americanah embodies it.
