Anthills of the Savannah

by Chinua Achebe
£9.99   paperback  Penguin Books Ltd (2001)

Anthills of the Savannah by Chinua Achebe 'Worshipping a dictator is such a pain in the ass.'
Chris, Ikem and Beatrice are three like-minded friends working under the military regime of His Excellency, the Sandhurst-educated President of Kangan. In the pressurized atmosphere of oppression and intimidation they are simply trying to live and love - and remain friends. But in a world where each day brings a new betrayal, hope is hard to cling on to.
Achebe's candid vision of contemporary African politics is a powerful fusion of angry voices and flashes of poetry. But his interpretation of post-oil-boom Nigeria is not defeatist; like his character Beatrice, Achebe refuses to disparage the day that still has an hour of light in its hand.
