Bookclub No. 39 Chinua Achebe “Things Fall Apart”

Published in 1958, this novel stands out as one of the first widely acclaimed works of modern fiction coming out of post-colonial Africa. It’s the story of the life of “the greatest wrestler and warrior” Okonkwo and his family in the small Nigerian village of Umuofia. Deeply attached to their community, a world full of gods, rites, hierarchies and the clan, they get uprooted by having to go into exile for seven long years. Things fall apart during this time, and the world upon their return, isn’t the same they have left behind.
