About This Item

New York: Ballantine / Fawcett Premier, January 1984. Paperback. Second Printing, January 1985. Unmarked. Spine tight and uncreased. Cover clean and bright. Not from a library. No remainder mark. No tears. 159 pages. Achebe uses the 'fall' of one man, a descendent of the hero in Things Fall Apart, to depict the birth of a whole new age in Nigerian life -- one ruled by the most powerful and disillusioning corruption.

Synopsis

No Longer at Ease is a 1960 novel by Nigerian author Chinua Achebe. It is the story of an Igbo (also spelled Ibo) man, Obi Okonkwo, who leaves his village for a British education and a job in the Nigerian colonial civil service, but who struggles to adapt to a Western lifestyle and ends up taking a bribe. The novel is the sequel to Achebe's Things Fall Apart, which concerned the struggle of Obi Okonkwo's grandfather Okonkwo against the changes brought by the English.
