Father of African Literature on “The story”

It is only the story ... that saves our progeny from blundering like blind beggars into the spikes of the cactus fence. The story is our escort; without it, we are blind. Does the blind man own his escort? No, neither do we the story; rather, it is the story that owns us” (Chinua AchebeAnthills of the Savannah, New York: Anchor Books, 1997, p. 114.)
