Critical Praise

"This is Chinua Achebe's classic novel, with more than two million copies sold since its first U.S. publication in 1969. Combining a richly African story with the author's keen awareness of the qualities common to all humanity, Achebe here shows that he is 'gloriously gifted, with the magic of an ebullient, generous, great talent.'"

——Nadine Gordimer
