Every book has a story of its own, a path leading from the initial idea that sparked it to its emergence into the world in published form. No two books follow quite the same path, but all are shaped by a similar array of market forces and writing craft concerns as well as by a cast of characters stretching beyond the author. Behind the Book explores how eleven contemporary first-time authors, in genres ranging from post-apocalyptic fiction to young adult fantasy to travel memoir, navigated these pathways with their debut works. Based on extensive interviews with the authors, it covers the process of writing and publishing a book from beginning to end, including idea generation, developing a process, building a support network, revising the manuscript, finding the right approach to publication, building awareness, and ultimately moving on to the next project. It also includes insights from editors, agents, publishers, and others who helped to bring these projects to life. Unlike other books on writing craft, Behind the Book looks at the larger picture of how an author’s work and choices can affect the outcome of a project. The authors profiled in each story open up about their challenges, mistakes, and successes. While their paths to publication may be unique, together they offer important lessons that authors of all types can apply to their own writing journeys.

Nagrađivana nigerijska spisateljica Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (1977.) zasjala je na svjetskoj književnoj sceni romanom Polovica žutog sunca u kojem prikazuje građanski rat u Nigeriji. Amerikana, njezin treći i jednako snažan roman, ocrtava život u poslijeratnoj Nigeriji, ali i u SAD-u i Velikoj Britaniji. Roman je dobio nagradu američkog Nacionalnog udruženja književnih kritičara (kojom su svojedobno ovjenčane i nobelovke Alice Munro i Toni Morrison). Amerikana ponajprije prati sudbinu mladog para ̶ Ifemelu i Obinzea. Njihova Nigerija shrvana je korupcijom i siromaštvom, a ljudi bježe iz zemlje, i to ne zbog gladi ili rata, već zbog „letargije uzrokovane nedostatkom izbora“. Samosvjesna Ifemelu odlazi na studij u Ameriku gdje proživljava neuspjehe i pobjede, nove ljubavne veze i prekide, ali stalno osjeća težinu onoga o čemu u Nigeriji nikad nije razmišljala: svoje rase. Obinze ne uspijeva dobiti američku vizu i odlazi u Englesku gdje radi ilegalno i na kraju je uhićen. Trinaest godina poslije Obinze živi u Nigeriji, obogatio se i zasnovao obitelj, a Ifemelu u SAD-u piše duhovit blog o rasnim temama koji joj donosi slavu i stipendiju na Princetonu. Prekretnica romana njezina je odluka da se vrati u Afriku. Nakon toliko godina odvojenosti i promjena Ifemelu i Obinze sastaju se u naizgled drugačijoj Nigeriji... Amerikana je roman o snazi prve ljubavi i mladenačkim snovima, životu u emigraciji, političkim previranjima, američkom snu. Ona je bogata tapiserija puna živopisnih likova koja prikazuje dva svijeta, onaj nigerijski i američki. Iako progovara o tome što znači biti crne boje kože u 21. stoljeću na Zapadu i ispisuje snažnu priču o rasi i identitetu, Amerikana je u osnovi knjiga o težnji svakoga od nas da u ovome razlomljenom, napuknutom i često okrutnom svijetu nađemo svoje mjesto i smisao. „Neke knjige pripovijedaju velike priče, neke mijenjaju naš pogled na svijet. Amerikana uspijeva u jednom i drugom.“ The Guardian

"بعد أن قلب هاري الظرف، ويداه ترتعدان، رأى هاري ختمًا شمعيًا أرجوانيًا يحمل شعار النبالة؛ أسدًا، ونسرًا، وفرو الغرير وثعبانًا يُحيط بالحرف "H"." لم يسمع هاري بهوجورتس من قبل على الإطلاق عندما بدأت الخطابات بالتساقط على ممسحة الباب على الرقم الرابع في شارع برايفت درايف. وكانت مغلّفة باللون الأخضر على مخطوطة ورقية صفراء مع ختم أرجواني، واستولى عليها عمه وعمته المخيفان بصورة سريعة. بعد ذلك، في عيد ميلاد هاري الحادي عشر، اقتحم رجل عملاق ذو عيون بارزة يُدعى روبياس هاغريد المكان حاملًا بعض الأخبار المذهلة: هاري بوتر أصبح ساحرًا، وتم قبوله في مدرسة هوجورتس لفنون السحر والشعوذة. مغامرة رائعة على وشك البدء!
