Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s book Americanah has been named in the New York Times List of Top 10 Best Books of 2013.

The New York Times recently released list is selected by the editors of the publication and Adichie’s novel was listed as the first.

New York Times Wrote;

By turns tender and trenchant, Adichie’s third novel takes on the comedy and tragedy of American race relations from the perspective of a young Nigerian immigrant. From the office politics of a hair-braiding salon to the burden of memory, there’s nothing too humble or daunting for this fearless writer, who is so attuned to the various worlds and shifting selves we inhabit — in life and online, in love, as agents and victims of history and the heroes of our own stories.

Adichie is also featured in Beyonce’s new self-titled album which has sold over 1 million copies its first week of release on iTunes.
