None the less a world

“It was a tight, blockaded and desperate world but none the less a world—with some goodness and some badness and plenty of heroism which, however, happened most times far, far below the eye-level of the people in this story—in the out-of-the-way refugee camps, in the damp tatters, in the hungry and bare-handed courage of the first line of fire.” —from “Girls at War

RIP, Chinua Achebe.
