Man Booker International Prize FINALIST 1987
"Achebe has written a story that sidesteps both ideologies of the African experience and political agendas, in order to lead us to a deeply human universal wisdom." — Washington Post Book World.
"[Anthills Of The Savannah] has wonderful satiric moments and resounds with big African laughter." — The New York Review Of Books.
"Achebe moves effortlessly… creating a flurry of perspectives from which his story’s dramatic and disturbing events are scrutinized. Anthills Of The Savannah… will prove hard to forget. It’s a vision of social change that strikes us with the force of prophecy" — USA Today.
