Obi Okonkwo is a young Eastern Nigerian, a promising representative of his generation, the bright boy of his village, who returns from his studies in England to try to live up to the expectations of his family and his tribe and at the same time to breathe the heavy atmosphere of Lagos. As a civil servant Obi holds a respected job; as the fiancé of Clara, the girl he met on the boat, he has much to look forward to: nevertheless Obi falls victim to the corruption of the capital. Like its predecessor, Things Fall Apart (whose hero was Obi's powerful grandfather), No Longer at Ease tells the story of an African tragically under pressure from a changing world
