Description: "A brilliant collection... [Achebe's] thoughts always pack a provacative wallop...Mr. Achebe aims to nudge readers to think past their stubborn preconceptions, and he succeeds marvelously."-- New York Times Book Review "We are indebted to Achebe for reminding us that art has social and moral dimensions--a truth often obscured by the nihilism fashionable in the West."-- Chicago Tribune "Western writers could learn much from these African visions, not because they radiate universal truths in the way Europe has seen itself doing, but precisely because they are so divergent from, so seemingly irrelevant to our head-down anxieties...Its truth lies in its diversity."-- New Statesman and Society "These essays are funny, lucid, intelligent, and formed by a historical experience that is still too little understood in the United States. . . [Achebe is] a powerful voice for cultural decolonization."-- The Village Voice
