By the renowned author of Things Fall Apart, this novel foreshadows the Nigerian coups of 1966 and shows the color and vivacity as well as the violence and corruption of a society making its own way between the two worlds. Winner of the Man Booker Prize for Lifetime Achievement, Chinua Achebe is universally recognized as one of Africa's greatest 20th-century writers. In a work that foreshadowed the 1966 Nigerian coup, schoolteacher Odili feuds with his former mentor, now a corrupt government minister. When the two vie viciously for the same seat in an election, their fury leads to revolution.
