The National Book Critics Circle, which serves nearly 600 member critics, authors, literary bloggers, book publishing personnel, and student members, announced its awards for 2013 tonight.
Among the winners was Chimamanda Adichie, who won the fiction award for Americanah.
A tale of the immigrant experience, Americanah was most deserving of the award. And I am saying that having only just started the book and being only 150 pages into it. I am completely enamored with it thus far.
