9780385474559: No Longer at Ease

A classic story of moral struggle in an age of turbulent social change and the final book in Achebe’s The African Trillogy

When Obi Okonkwo—grandson of Okonkwo, the main character in Things Fall Apart—returns to Nigeria from England in the 1950s, his foreign education separates him from his African roots. He has become a part of a ruling elite whose corruption he finds repugnant. Forced to choose between traditional values and the demands of a changing world, he finds himself trapped between the expectations of his family, his village, and the colonial world.

Showing a man lost in cultural limbo, and a nation entering a new age of disillusionment,  No Longer at Ease concludes Achebe's remarkable trilogy charting three generations of an African community under the impact of colonialism, the first two volumes of which are  Things Fall Apart and  Arrow of God.
