Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A latest volume of autobiographical essays by the Man Booker International Prize-winning author of Things Fall Apart includes such pieces as "African-American Visitations," "What Is Nigeria to Me?" and "Politics of the Politicians of Language."


Review:

"Here style is substance as Achebe writes with generosity, reason, and elegant clarity about the perpetual struggles between tyranny and resistance, denial and remembrance."

Donna Seaman, Booklist, 10/01/2009

Review:

"[W]hen Nigerian-born Chinua Achebe first applied for a passport, he discovered that he was defined as a 'British Protected Person.' British protection assumed the humiliation and denial of dignity of colonialism but also allowed for the unpredictable in human affairs....In all of these essays, Achebe generously locates and describes this unpredictable area. His own missionary education, his decision to write in English and his native Igbo, his participation in international panels and ceremonies, his acceptance of literary prizes and fellowships all occupy this area."

Barbara Fisher, Boston Globe, 10/25/2009
