Chief the Honourable M A Nanga, MP, left his job as a teacher to become a politician. As Minister for Culture, he is a man of the people. At first, the contrast between Nanga and Odili, a former pupil who is visiting the Ministry, appears huge. But Odili's idealism soon collides with his lusts, and the two men's personal and political taunting threaten to send their country spinning into chaos.

    " My introduction to Chinua Achebe's work was through "Things Fall Apart", and I loved it. I find that Achebe took on a different character and writing style for "A Man of the People". He definitely has a talent for satirical writing, but I miss the more poetic, dramatic style he used in "Things Fall Apart". That being said, I still think this is a good book and is worth a read for those of you who enjoy Achebe's work or like reading about Africa. "

    " An important novel. Read it as part of my African Canon literature module. Funny, challenging, and laced with foreboding, made all the more enriching by the fantastic first-person narrator that is Odili. Definitely worth a read. "

    " Although I found it slow-to-get-going, in the end this book amazed me for (among other things) its narrator: its complex, almost-reliable, subtle, believable narrator. Achebe makes him sometimes self-aware and sometimes not, which is an impressive feat for a novelist to manage. "
