Chinua Achebe (A)

List Price: $11.00 (Paperback – Africa / Colonization / Igbo Culture History  - 1959)

Ashay’s Price: $11.00

Description: A classic of modern African writing, this is the tale of what happens to tribal customs and old ways with the arrival of the Europeans (the white man) … colonization.

Written in direct, almost fable-like prose, it depicts the rise and fall of Okonkwo, a Nigerian whose sense of manliness is more akin to that of his warrior ancestors than to that of his fellow clansmen who have converted to Christianity and are appeasing the British administrators who infiltrate their village. The tough, proud, hardworking Okonkwo is at once a quintessential old-order Nigerian and a universal character in whom sons of all races have identified the figure of their father. (Over 8 million copies sold.  Translated into forty-five languages.)

Ashay says, “A friend said that when he read Chinua Achebe’s book it was life changing and he wished he had read it years ago, because it addresses the imposition of colonization and the effect on African culture and her people.  Things Fall Apart is a brilliant story told in the voice of an African. Quite simply a masterpiece for all time with a message for everyone who seeks to know thyself.  Great for high school and college. Must have for the classroom and library!"
