Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is up against Americans Jhumpa Lahiri and Donna Tartt for fiction accolade the Women's Prize.

Adichie's Nigerian exploration "Americanah"; Lahiri's Indian-American saga "The Lowland"; and Tartt's arty bestseller "The Goldfinch" are among six books shortlisted for the 30,000-pound prize, open to female writers in English from around the world.
