Okonkwo is the greatest warrior alive, famous throughout West Africa.

But when he accidentally kills a clansman, things begin to fall apart.

Then Okonkwo returns from exile to find missionaries and colonial governors have arrived in the village.

With his world thrown radically off-balance he can only hurtle towards tragedy.

Chinua Achebe's stark novel reshaped both African and world literature.

This arresting parable of a proud but powerless man witnessing the ruin of his people begins Achebe's landmark trilogy of works chronicling the fate of one African community, continued in Arrow of God and No Longer at Ease.
