Description: Praise for Chinua Achebe "A magical writer--one of the greatest of the twentieth century." --Margaret Atwood "African literature is incomplete and unthinkable without the works of Chinua Achebe." --Toni Morrison "Chinua Achebe is gloriously gifted with the magic of an ebullient, generous, great talent." --Nadine Gordimer "Achebe's influence should go on and on . . . teaching and reminding that all humankind is one." -- The Nation "The father of African literature in the English language and undoubtedly one of the most important writers of the second half of the twentieth century." --Caryl Phillips, The Observer "We are indebted to Achebe for reminding us that art has social and moral dimension--a truth often obscured." -- Chicago Tribune "He is one of the few writers of our time who has touched us with a code of values that will never be ironic." --Michael Ondaatje "For so many readers around the world, it is Chinua Achebe who opened up the magic casements of African fiction." --Kwame Anthony Appiah "[Achebe] is one of world literature's great humane voices." -- Times Literary Supplement "Achebe is one of the most distinguished artists to emerge from the West African cultural renaissance of the post-war world." -- The Sunday Times (London) "[Achebe is] a powerful voice for cultural decolonization." -- The Village Voice "Chinua Achebe has shown that a mind that observes clearly but feels deeply enough to afford laughter may be more wise than all the politicians and journalists." -- Time "The power and majesty of Chinua Achebe's work has, literally, opened the world to generations of readers. He is an ambassador of art, and a profound recorder of the human condition." --Michael Dorris
