FROM THE PUBLISHER - Chinua Achebe is a young Nigerian whose first book, THINGS FALL APART, which portrayed the break-up of tribal life at the end of the last century under the impact of the white man's civilization, made a considerable impression on critics both in England and the United States. This new hovel, which is marked by the same strong narrative and honesty of approach, is set in present-day Nigeria. Obi Okonkwo is an Ibo from Eastern Nigeria, a promising representative of his generation, the bright boy of. his village who returns from his studies in England to try and live up to the expectations of his family and his tribe and at the same time to breathe the heady atmosphere of Lagos, a city whose tempo and temptations are heady fare for the boy from the country. As a civil servant Obi holds a respected job; as the fiance of Clara, the girl he met on the boat, he has much to look forward to; yet nevertheless Obi falls victim to the corruption of the capital. Like its predecessor, THINGS FALL APART (whose hero was Obi's powerful grandfather), NO LONGER AT EASE tells the story of an African tragically under pressure from a changing world, a story as old as Africa and as new as today's headlines.
