Well, there goes another great writer. We’ve lost many in recent years and I miss them all. The idea that no further words will come from those pens, those keyboards, those minds, saddens me.
Of course, new writers will emerge—they always do—but I still miss the tried and true.
One of my favorite Achebe quotes: “One of the truest tests of integrity is its blunt refusal to be compromised.” A testament to his courage and his writing.
