More personally revealing than anything Achebe has written,Home and Exile-the great Nigerian novelists first book in more than ten years-is a major statement on the importance of stories as real sources of power, especially for those whose stories have traditionally been told by outsiders. In three elegant essays, Achebe seeks to rescue African culture from narratives written about it by Europeans. Looking through the prism of his experiences as a student in English schools in Nigeria, he provides devastating examples of European cultural imperialism. He examines the impact that his novelThings Fall Aparthad on efforts to reclaim Africas story. And he argues for the importance of writing and living the African experience because, he believes, Africa needs stories told by Africans.
