Abstract:Africa's most important writer, Chinua Achebe, was born in Onitsha, Nigeria, in 1930. Of his first novel, 'Things fall apart' (1958), over eight million copies have been sold. The interviews collected here span more than thirty years of Achebe's writing career. The earliest was recorded in 1962, the latest in 1995. The interviews are a representative sample of what has appeared in newspapers, journals and books in many different countries in the period under coverage.
