Things Fall Apart

by Chinua Achebe


Things Fall Apart provides one of the most illuminating and permanent monuments to African experience. Achebe does not only capture life in a pre-colonial African village, he conveys the tragedy of the loss of that world while broadening our understanding of our contemporary realities.

“The world has no end, and what is good among one people is an abomination with others.”
