Summary

With over two million copies sold since its first U.S. Publication in 1969, Things Fall Apart is a classic novel. Chronicling the life Okonkwo; the leader of an Igbo (Ibo) community, from the events leading up to his banishment from the community for accidentally killing a clansman, through the seven years of his exile, to his return. Chinua Achebe writes a richly African story with a keen awareness for the common qualities among all humanity. As Nadine Gordimer was quoted , Achebe proves in this novel he is "gloriously gifted, with the magic of an ebullient, generous, great talent." Things Fall Apart was praised for its intelligent and realistic treatment of tribal beliefs and of psychological disintegration coincident with social unraveling. Things Fall Apart helped create the Nigerian literary renaissance of the 1960s.

Author Bio

Chinua Achebe was born in Nigeria in 1930. He was raised in the village of Ogidi, one of the first centers of Anglican missionary work in Eastern Nigeria, and is a graduate of University College, Ibadan. Cited in the London Sunday Times as one of the ''1,000 Makers of the Twentieth Century'' for defining ''a modern African literature that was truly African'' and thereby making ''a major contribution to world literature,'' he has published novels, short stories, essays, and children's books. His volume of poetry Christmas in Biafra was the joint winner of the first Commonwealth Poetry Prize. Of his novels, Arrow of God won the New Statesman-Jock Campbell Award, and Anthills of the Savannah was a finalist for the 1987 Booker Prize. Chinua Achebe lives with his wife in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, where they both teach at Bard College. They have four children.
