Book description
One gets the unpalatable impression that the late Cyprian Ekwensi wassomewhat undermined as a writer. Yet he was outstanding and beloved bycountless readers. He published many excellent novels, including JaguaNana, Jagua Nanas daughter, Beautiful feathers, Iska, Survive thepeace, Burning Grass, and lots of other fiction for children. Indeed,People of the City was published many years before Achebes Thingsfall apart. This novel raises many questions, but mainly aboutsurvival in the (Nigerian) city over 60 years ago, and multi-faceted,intriguing characters. The main protagonist, Amusa Sango is both ajournalist, and leader of a (music) band. Think about it, isnt such acombination highly unusual? So Sango is a striking young man, pullingout all the stops to survive. He is not a bad man by any standards,but he has to confront certain odds and challenges - he is accused ofbeing melodramatic by his (media) superiors, but his approach hereseems human, humane and practical, considering the violence thatextirpates the life of his fellow young man. The city itself isbrilliantly portrayed, the desperation, the wiles of many women. Wesee the challenges/problems that go with polygamy as exemplified bySangos landlord. Life is a continuum and though the action here isanchored on many decades ago, is it not the same even now? How do weexpect women, young women, to survive in cities, since the reality isthat only very few of them can be gainfully employed? There is a lotof drama and melodrama here, but such constitute the warp and weft oflife. Those who attempt to compare and contrast Ekwensi and Achebeoften miss the point; Achebe is world-famous for depictingpre-colonial African (Igbo) land, whereas Ekwensi is world-famous forfocusing on city life, its ravages on the citizens, especially onwomen. This is a sociological treasure as we are afforded glimpsesinto early modern major city (ies) in west Africa.
