About the Author:

Elechi Amadi was born in 1934 in Aluu near Port Harcourt in Eastern Nigeria. At University College, Ibadan he took a degree in physics and mathematics. After a period of land surveying and teaching he enlisted in the Nigerian Army. He left the army finally to work for the Rivers State Government, where he headed the Ministry of Education. He is the author of the renowned trilogy of novels The Concubine, The Great Ponds, The Slave. And his civil war diary, Sunset in Biafra, has been acclaimed. He has also published a verse play Isiburu and Ethics in Nigerian Culture.

Review:

"A highly sophisticated, measured treatment of the fatal loves of a woman in an Eastern Nigerian village. Written in a grave and simple style, it reveals its author as a fine writer ruminating on a past already turning into legend." --The New Statesman
