People of the City tells the story of a young crime reporter and dance-band leader in a great West African city who comes to see that what he can do for the developing country in which he lives is more important than the considerable and varied personal pleasures he can find in the hectic life of the city. Ekwensi’s delicious first book has the swagger, bravado, and elation of the great bands of West Africa

This book was immediately acclaimed as the first major novel in English by a West African to be widely read throughout the English-speaking world.
