Chinua Achebe

The African Trilogy

Things Fall Apart Arrow of God No Longer at Ease

€ 26.95


`The African Trilogy--comprised of Things Fall Apart, Arrow of God, and No Longer at Ease--is his magnum opus. In these masterly novels, Achebe brilliantly imagines the lives of three generations of an African community as their world is upended by the forces of colonialism from the first arrival of the British to the waning days of empire.
