Feminist performance artist Christen Clifford on Chimamanda Adichie's Americanah

At Summer Stories, we've asked our favourite authors and changemakers for their best summer story. We got in touch with New York-based essayist and performance artist Christen Clifford to find our her favourite summer read. 

“I read Chimamanda Adichie's Americanah on a dock on a lake in the Catskills a few summers ago. I remember her prose, and the water shimmering, and the sun on my back. I stayed til the dinner bell. I love reading in summer, away from the city.

Christen Clifford is an artist and writer in New York.
