Todos deberíamos ser feministas / We Should All Be Feminists (Spanish Edition)
Un libro que recoge el trascendental y emblemático discurso que dio la autora en su TEDx Talk sobre lo que significa ser feminista en el siglo XXI.

Ser feminista no es solo cosa de mujeres. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie lo demuestra en este elocuente y perspicaz texto, en el que nos brinda una definición singular de lo que significa ser feminista en el siglo XXI. Con un estilo claro y directo, y sin dejar de lado el humor, esta carismática autora explora el papel de la mujer actual y apunta ideas para hacer de este mundo un lugar más justo.

«Hoy me gustaría pedir que empecemos a soñar con un plan para un mundo distinto. Un mundo más justo. Un mundo de hombres y mujeres más felices y más honestos consigo mismos. Y esta es la forma de empezar: tenemos que criar a nuestras hijas de otra forma. Y también a nuestros hijos.»

ENGLSIH DESCRIPTION

What does “feminism” mean today? That is the question at the heart of We Should All Be Feminists, a personal, eloquently-argued essay—adapted from her much-viewed Tedx talk of the same name—by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the award-winning author of Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun. With humor and levity, here Adichie offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first century—one rooted in inclusion and awareness.

She shines a light not only on blatant discrimination, but also the more insidious, institutional behaviors that marginalize women around the world, in order to help readers of all walks of life better understand the often masked realities of sexual politics. Throughout, she draws extensively on her own experiences—in the U.S., in her native Nigeria, and abroad—offering an artfully nuanced explanation of why the gender divide is harmful for women and men, alike.

Argued in the same observant, witty and clever prose that has made Adichie a bestselling novelist, here is one remarkable author’s exploration of what it means to be a woman today—and an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

Americanah  / In Spanish (Spanish Edition)
Una original historia sobre la inmigración en Estados Unidos desde el punto de vista de una estudiante de literatura nigeriana.


Lagos, mediados de los noventa. En el marco de una dictadura militar y en una Nigeria que ofrece poco o ningún futuro, Ifemelu y Obinze, dos adolescentes atípicos, se enamoran apasionadamente. Como gran parte de su generación, saben que antes o después tendrán que dejar el país.

Obinze siempre ha soñado con vivir en Estados Unidos, pero es Ifemelu quien consigue el visado para vivir con su tía en Brooklyn y estudiar en la universidad. Mientras Obinze lucha contra la burocracia para reunirse con Ifemelu, ella se encuentra en una América donde nada es como se imaginaba, comenzando por la importancia del color de su piel. Todas sus experiencias, desgracias y aventuras conducen a una única pregunta: ¿acabará convirtiéndose en una «americanah»?

Americanah, que recoge el término burlón con que los nigerianos se refieren a los que vuelven de Estados Unidos dándose aires, es una historia de amor a lo largo de tres décadas y tres continentes, la historia de cómo se crea una identidad al margen de los dictados de la sociedad y sus prejuicios.

Reseñas:

«Confirma el virtuosismo, la empatía sin límites y la punzante agudeza social de Adichie.»

Dave Eggers

«Hay algunas novelas que cuentan una gran historia y otras que consiguen que cambies la manera que tienes de ver el mundo. Americanah, de Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, consigue las dos cosas.»

Elisabeth Day, The Guardian

«Americanah es esa cosa rara en la ficción literaria contemporánea: una exuberante historia de amor que también es una crítica social penetrante y divertida [...]. Adichie escribe con perspicacia.»

Vogue

Ifemelu and Obinze are young and in love when they depart military-ruled Nigeria for the West. Beautiful, self-assured Ifemelu heads for America, where despite her academic success, she is forced to grapple with what it means to be black for the first time. Quiet, thoughtful Obinze had hoped to join her, but with post-9/11 America closed to him, he instead plunges into a dangerous, undocumented life in London. Fifteen years later, they reunite in a newly democratic Nigeria, and reignite their passion—for each other and for their homeland.

The Thing Around Your Neck
These twelve dazzling stories from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie — the Orange Broadband Prize–winning author of Half of a Yellow Sun — are her most intimate works to date.

In these stories Adichie turns her penetrating eye to the ties that bind men and women, parents and children, Nigeria and the United States. In “A Private Experience,” a medical student hides from a violent riot with a poor Muslim woman, and the young mother at the centre of “Imitation” finds her comfortable life in Philadelphia threatened when she learns that her husband has moved his mistress into their Lagos home.

Searing and profound, suffused with beauty, sorrow and longing, this collection is a resounding confirmation of Adichie’s prodigious literary powers.

Purple Hibiscus: A Novel
Fifteen-year-old Kambili's world is circumscribed by the high walls and frangipani trees of her family compound. Her wealthy Catholic father, under whose shadow Kambili lives, while generous and politically active in the community, is repressive and fanatically religious at home.

When Nigeria begins to fall apart under a military coup, Kambili's father sends her and her brother away to stay with their aunt, a University professor, whose house is noisy and full of laughter. There, Kambili and her brother discover a life and love beyond the confines of their father's authority. The visit will lift the silence from their world and, in time, give rise to devotion and defiance that reveal themselves in profound and unexpected ways. This is a book about the promise of freedom; about the blurred lines between childhood and adulthood; between love and hatred, between the old gods and the new.
