Towards the end of Achebe's legendary novel, "Things Fall Apart," Obierika looks at the dangling body of his friend Okonkwo and angrily shouts "That man was one of the greatest men in Umuofia, you drove him to kill himself; and now he will be buried like a dog." I am glad that today on the death of Achebe I can scream, "That man was one of the brilliant students of his time; you drove him to tell stories and now he will live for ever." Adieu, Master craftsman; you made the world a better place. It was a privilege to meet and interview you.
