Author Bio
Chinua Achebe
Albert Chinualumogua Achebe was born into the Igbo tribe in Nigeria and was the son of a Christian evangelist. He has been a civil servant, an editor, and a political activist. He is also a widely popular and influential writer, Nigeria's foremost literary ambassador; his novels and short stories have made him one of the first postcolonial African writers to achieve an international reputation. An automobile accident in 1990 near Lagos left Achebe paralyzed from the waist down; that year, he and his wife came to the U.S. and began teaching at Bard College, in part because the American health-care system could provide the medical services he needed and in part because of the unsettled Nigerian political situation. His novel THINGS FALL APART has been translated into 50 languages and has sold more than 8 million copies internationally. In 2007, Achebe won the Man Booker International Prize for his contribution to literature.
