Chinua Achebe Passes On at 82

Another one bites the dust! I grew up reading great Nigerian writers like Prof. wole Soyinka, Chinua Achebe, Cyprian Ekwensi etc, and each time I hear any news about them, I feel like I owe it to the literary world to share.
Chinua Achebe, the legendary author of the highly lauded prose, THINGS FALL APART passed on last night in a hospital in Boston Massachusetts, and I think this is a blow to the Nigerian Literary world.
Rest in peace Sir, you were and will always be an inspiration to me.
