Description

"Home and Exile" is a moving account of an exceptional life. Achebe reveals the inner workings of the human conscience throughout the predicament of Africa and his own intellectual life. It is a story of the triumph of the mind, told in words of one of the twentieth century's most gifted writers. Marked by a passionate commitment to political justice, "Home and Exile" brings to life Africa's first fraught encounters with Europe and the rest of the world while unflinchingly depicting the dark side of contemporary African political life.show more
