Everyman's Library Presents The African Trilogy and I Am Moved by the Title

I love what Emmanuel Sigauke is doing here. He comments on Achebe's Trilogy now published in Everyman's library.
Here's a bit of the ideas he tackles:
"Comment about the "Africanness" of the trilogy: First, I am very happy that Achebe's publications have been published under the Everyman's Library label, as have those of Doris Lessing, Toni Morrison, Frank O'Connor and others. There are ongoing discussions of the Africanity of African writers and their books, or the repeatable question of the Africanicity of African literature(because, of course, this Africanicity is always either questioned or affirmed, dismissed or defended) ..."
I don't want to tell it all, so please check it out on his blog; ENJOY.
