Americanah, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie  
 
We will read and discuss Americanah, named one of The New York Times Book Review's 10 Best Books of 2013. The NYT editors described this novel as "by turns tender and trenchant" and said "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." From the award-winning author of Half of a Yellow Sun.

Night Film, by Marisha Pessl
 
Marisha Pessl, author of the bestselling debut novel, Special Topics in Calamity Physics, has outdone herself with Night Film, a literary mystery, smart and thrilling. Joe Hill, reviewer from The New York Times Book Review, says Night Film has been precision-engineered to be read at high velocity, and its energy would be the envy of any summer blockbuster. Your average writer of thrillers should lust for Pessl’s deft touch with character.” It was a NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER and was also NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR • Cosmopolitan • Kirkus Reviews • BookPage
