Americanah (Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie)

Nigeria / 2013

"Her hair was hanging down rather than standing up, straight and sleek, parted at the side and curving to a slight bob at her chin. The verve was gone. She did not recognize herself. She left the salon almost mournfully; while the hairdressers had flat-ironed the ends, the smell of burning, of something organic dying which should not have died, had made her feel a sense of loss."
