About This Item

McDowell Obolensky, 1959. Very good with slight dampstain to a portion of the lower half inch of the rear board (and barely visible at the bottom of the spine), not affecting the interior pages. Otherwise clean and tight. In a very good dust jacket ($3.75 price intact) with corresponding internal stain, barely visible on the exterior. Some light wear to the corners and a chip to the bottom edge of the front panel, but overall quite attractive. A very nice copy of this scarce title, one of the most important novels to come out of Africa in the 20th Century.. 1st Edition.

Synopsis

Things Fall Apart is a 1958 English-language novel by Nigerian author Chinua Achebe. It is a staple book in schools throughout Africa and widely read and studied in English-speaking countries around the world. It is seen as the archetypal modern African novel in English, and one of the first African novels written in English to receive global critical acclaim. The title of the novel comes from William Butler Yeats' poem "The Second Coming".
