In essays, verse and questions, twenty two contributors representing a plethora of endeavors discuss Chinua Achebe s life, works and legacy. These contributors who were Achebe s friends, peers, colleagues, scholars, protégés, and yet others who were influenced by him and come from different generations discuss the man and his influence in this uniquely remarkable book. Wole Soyinka and Ngugi wa Thiong o lead an ensemble cast of outstanding individuals, that include two up and coming young writers, Ugo F. Edu and Chiderah A. Monde, in celebrating Chinua Achebe. The picture that emerges from reading this book is a beautiful mosaic of a mild mannered, but powerful man who made a difference to the lives of many people.
