Summary of the Book
Ifemelu and Obinze fell in love as teenagers in a Lagos secondary school. They are torn asunder by the chaos of their nation, for Ifemelu departs for America to study. Obinze hopes to join her, but horror strikes, and America does not let him in after the devastating events of 9/11. He journeys to a life in London, where he changes with the years. In the future, Obinze enjoys a life in the now democratic Nigeria. Ifemelu is a successful blogger who writes about race in America. They may have grown apart, but when Ifemelu returns to Nigeria, their passion reignites and they are forced to contemplate the toughest decisions of their lives. This book is touching, fearless, gripping and funny in its richness and honesty.
