Things Fall Apart
Anchor Books, 2000 - 209 頁
'Things Fall Apart' tells two intertwining stories, both centering on Okonkwo, a 'strong man' of an Ibo village in Nigeria.

The second, as modern as the first is ancient, concerns the clash of cultures and the destruction of Okonkwo's world with the arrival of aggressive European missionaries.
