Críticas 'The first novel in English which spoke from the interior of an African character rather than portraying the African as exotic as the white man would see him' Wole Soyinka The Founding Father of the African novel in English - The Guardian Reseña del editor One of the BBC's '100 Novels That Shaped Our World'A worldwide bestseller and the first part of Achebe's African Trilogy Things Fall Apart is the compelling story of one man's battle to protect his community against the forces of changeOkonkwo is the greatest wrestler and warrior alive and his fame spreads throughout West Africa like a bush-fire in the harmattan. But when he accidentally kills a clansman things begin to fall apart. Then Okonkwo returns from exile to find missionaries and colonial governors have arrived in the village. With his world thrown radically off-balance he can only hurtle towards tragedy. First published in 1958 Chinua Achebe's stark coolly ironic novel reshaped both African and world literature and has sold over ten million copies in forty-five languages. This arresting parable of a proud but powerless man witnessing the ruin of his people begins Achebe's landmark trilogy of works chronicling the fate of one African community continued in Arrow of God and No Longer at Ease.'His courage and generosity are made manifest in the work' Toni Morrison'The writer in whose company the prison walls fell down' Nelson Mandela'A great book that bespeaks a great brave kind human spirit' John UpdikeWith an Introduction by Biyi Bandele Biografía del autor Chinua Achebe was born in Nigeria in 1930. He was raised in the large village of Ogidi one of the first centers of Anglican missionary work in Eastern Nigeria and was a graduate of University College Ibadan. His early career in radio ended abruptly in 1966 when he left his post as Director of External Broadcasting in Nigeria during the national upheaval that led to the Biafran War.

He was appointed Senior Research Fellow at the University of Nigeria Nsukka and began lecturing widely abroad. For over fifteen years he was the Charles P. Stevenson Professor of Languages and Literature at Bard College. He was Professor at the David and Marianna Fisher University and Professor of Africana studies at Brown University.
