n English in Africa - Identity and Narrativity in a Postcolonial Context
Arrows of Rain, Okey Ndibe
A Squatter's Tale, Ike Oguine : book review
Beside the Nobel Prize won by Wole Soyinka, perhaps the next most important development in the Nigerian literary scene in the year 1986 was the publication of Chinua Achebe's Anthills of the Savannah. Up till that time Achebe's most recent novel had been A Man of the People, published in 1966 and focusing on Nigeria's First Republic. In this highly satiric novel Achebe exposes the corrupt practices of the political leaders of the period, ending up by predicting the invasion of the nation's political landscape by the military.
