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. 

“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.
