Winner of both the Orange Prize and the Commonwealth Writers' Prize, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie earned a MacArthur Fellowship with her brilliant fiction. In "Imitation" she explrored a unique aspect of the Nigerian-American experience.
Following the fashion of her country, Nkem has left Nigeria to raise her children in America, while her husband Obiora remains in their homeland. One day, a friend calls Nkem from Africa with the news that Obiora is keeping a girlfriend. "This is what happens when you marry a rich man," says the friend. Caught between two worlds and wanting the best for her children, Nkem faces a difficult decision.
All the more powerful for its restraint and calm, "Imitation" is a fascinating tale of one woman's struggle against isolation.
