Achebe's Achievement

Things Fall Apart considered

Along with Nectar in a Seive, Things Fall Apart was one of the few "multicultural books" to which I was exposed in my early formal education.

It is my contention that a thorough grounding in the pale patriarchy's canon made possible for me to access multicultural reading (take a look at the sidebar). 

All of that said, this is one of those titles that deserve again and again a place within the canon of great works.
