Palm Wine and Purple Hibiscus: An Introduction to Nigerian Literature

I'm taking a Nigerian Literature course this semester. Here's what we read:
1. The Palm Wine Drinkard by Amos Tutuola
2. Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
3. Sozaboy by Ken Saro-Wiwa
4. Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Adichie
5. The Famished Road by Ben Okri
6. Say You're One of Them by Owem Okpa

He explained that he ordered them that way because he believes each novel responds in some way to the one (or ones) before it.
