Title: There was a Country: A Memoir

Author: Chinua Achebe, Professor of Africana Studies
Publisher: Penguin; Pub. Date: September 2013; Subject: Academic; Memoir;

"The defining experience of Chinua Achebe’s life was the Nigerian civil war, also known as the Biafran War, of 1967–1970. The conflict was infamous for its savage impact on the Biafran people, Chinua Achebe’s people, many of whom were starved to death after the Nigerian government blockaded their borders…Achebe masterfully relates his experience, both as he lived it and how he has come to understand it…Marrying history and memoir, poetry and prose, There Was a Country is a distillation of vivid firsthand observation and forty years of research and reflection. Wise, humane, and authoritative, it will stand as definitive and reinforce Achebe’s place as one of the most vital literary and moral voices of our age.”--publisher description
