Things Fall Apart, Achebe's first novel, is already a classic of modern writing. Critics in Africa, Europe and America acclaimed it on publication and have continued to do so ever since.
'.... The story is the tragedy of Okonkwo, an important man in the Ibo tribe in the days when white men were first appearing on the scene ... Mr Achebe's very simple but excellent novel tells of the series of events by which Okonkwo through his pride and fears becomes exiled from his tribe and returns only to be forced into ignominy in a bid to escape the result of his rash courage against the white man... He handles the macabre with telling restraint and the pathetic without any false embarrassment.'
