A Man of the People, Paperback / softback Book

A Man of the People Paperback / softback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series

Description

As Minister for Culture, the Honourable M. A. Nanga is 'a man of the people', as cynical as he is charming, and a roguish opportunist.

At first, the contrast between Nanga and Odili, a former pupil who is visiting the ministry, appears huge.

But in the 'eat-and-let-eat' atmosphere, Odili's idealism soon collides with his lusts - and the two men's personal and political tauntings threaten to send their country into chaos.

Published, prophetically, just days before Nigeria's first attempted coup in 1966, A Man of the People is an essential part of his body of work dealing with modern African history.
