Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here, collected for the first time in Everymans Library, are the three internationally acclaimed classic novels that comprise what has come to be known as Chinua Achebes “African Trilogy.”

Beginning with the best-selling Things Fall Apart—on the heels of its fiftieth anniversary—The African Trilogy captures a society caught between its traditional roots and the demands of a rapidly changing world. Achebes most famous novel introduces us to Okonkwo, an important member of the Igbo people, who fails to adjust as his village is colonized by the British. In No Longer at Ease we meet his grandson, Obi Okonkwo, a young man who was sent to a university in England and has returned, only to clash with the ruling elite to which he now believes he belongs. Arrow of God tells the story of Ezuelu, the chief priest of several Nigerian villages, and his battle with Christian missionaries.

In these masterful novels, Achebe brilliantly sets universal tales of personal and moral struggle in the context of the tragic drama of colonization.

Synopsis:

Collected for the first time in one complete volume, God Dies by the Nile and other Novels are three of El Saadawi’s most remarkable tales of tragedy, revenge, despair, and violence. Powerful and moving, El Saadawi masterfully captures the personal struggles of women in a society steeped in hypocrisy and reveals the daily revolt of women against the corrupt norms of the Arab world. 

Synopsis:

An extraordinary collection of renowned world literature including Nobel Prize winners and beloved fiction writers in beautiful, enduring hardcover editions with elegant cloth sewn bindings, gold stamped covers, and silk ribbon markers.

Titles included:

The African Trilogy by Chinua Achebe

The Cairo Trilogy by Naguib Mahfouz

A House for Mr. Biswas by V. S. Naipaul

The House of Spirits by Isabel Allende

Midnights Children by Salman Rushdie

One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez
