Americanah

“The exaggerated gratitude that came with immigration insecurity.”

“And she had the sudden sensation of fogginess, of a milky web through which she tried to claw. Her autumn of half blindness had begun, the autumn of puzzlements, of experiences she had knowing there were slippery layers of meaning that eluded her.”

“It seemed to me that in America blacks and whites work together but don’t play together, and here (UK) blacks and white play together but don’t work together,”

I enjoyed Americanah from Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie. Immigration stories, iykyk.

A bit long, though.
