The value of Achebe's book is . . . to insist that literature matters. * * Financial Times * * A moving account of an exceptional life . . . Achebe reveals the inner workings of the human conscience through the predicament of Africa and his own intellectual life . . . A story of the triumph of the mind, told in the words of one of the century's most gifted writers. -- Henry Louis Gates Jr A book that anyone concerned with advancing social justice and human dignity should read. * * Seattle Times * * In defining the dignity and vibrancy of African literature, Chinua Achebe defies the stranglehold of colonial, imperialist and cultural dispossession. He brings us into balance with a world of literature and hope that the West with its myth of primacy denies. -- Walter Mosley
