It is at this point that Adichie really begins to flex her muscles as a novelist: the sense of dislocation felt by both characters in two countries with wholly different histories and class structures is expertly rendered. But this is a masterful rollercoaster, and that's before even knowing that Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern were in the wonderful Lynch version.
