About the Author

Chinua Achebe was born in Nigeria in 1930. His first novel, Things Falls Apart, became a classic of international literature and required reading for students worldwide. He also authored four subsequent novels, two short-story collections, and numerous other books. He was the David and Marianna Fisher University Professor and Professor of Africana Studies at Brown University and, for over 15 years, was the Charles P. Stevenson Jr. Professor of Languages and Literature at Bard College. In 2007, Achebe was awarded the Man Booker International Prize for lifetime achievement. He died in 2013.

Su'ur Agema, August 4, 2006 (view all comments by Su'ur Agema)
The book is a master piece that fully explores the traditions of the Ibos. Achebe's use of proverbs is profound and the way he writes his story is so compelling that you actually feel that what you are reading is reality.
Summarily, the book is a must read for all African students and anyone interested in African traditions.
Kudos to the master of the game, ACHEBE...viva!
