First Edition Of Chinua Achebe’s ‘Things Fall Apart’ Sold For N1m


A first print, first edition copy of late Chinua Achebe’s premier novel ‘Things Fall Apart’ has been purchased for one million naira.

The private sale took place on Twitter following a call by author, Lola Shoneyin for collectors to purchase the vintage copy.

Shoneyin, who is well-known for her book ‘The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives’, tweeted the sale @lolashoneyin on Sunday.

She said, “Hey book collectors! My friend is selling a first print, first edition copy of ‘Things Fall Apart’ for N1m. Reply here and she will contact you.”

Fans of Achebe’s work took to the comment section to praise the work, with some placing bids. However, she announced hours later that the book had been bought by an anonymous buyer.

Achebe was a Nigerian novelist, poet, professor, and critic. ‘Things Fall Apart’, his first novel, is often considered his best. He won the Man Booker International Prize in 2007.
