A Man Of The People By Chinua Achebe
A very funny satire on the sad corruptions that threaten careerist politicians. chief the honourable M.A. Nanga M.P. is a beautifully realized comic portrait of a fraudulent, arriviste, demagogic universal charmer. set against Mr. Nanga is the uncorrupted, sensual, self-inquiring young narrator odii, and the attractive, unidealixed hero, comes at moments to the absurd revolting Nanga, and it is exactly odii’s most attractive quality, his sensual zest for life, that puts him in the greatest peril of becoming yet one more Mr. Nanga, the deflated demagogue who ends on the rubbish heap.
