ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Chinua Achebe was born in Nigeria in 1930. He was raised in the village of Ogidi, one of the first centers of Anglican missionary work in Eastern Nigeria, and is a graduate of University College, Ibadan. Cited in the London Sunday Times as one of the "1,000 Makers of the Twentieth Century" for defining "a modern African literature that was truly African" and thereby making "a major contribution to world literature," he has published novels, short stories, essays, and children's books. His volume of poetry Christmas in Biafra was the joint winner of the first Commonwealth Poetry Prize. Of his novels, Arrow of God won the New Statesman-Jock Campbell Award, and Anthills of the Savannah was a finalist for the 1987 Booker Prize. Chinua Achebe lives with his wife in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, where they both teach at Bard College. They have four children.
