In this photo taken, Saturday, April 27, 2013, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, signs autographs during a book launch of her new book 'Americanah', in Lagos, Nigeria. Modern life in Lagos, Nigeria's largest city, has become almost a character itself in novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's new book, "Americanah."
