Things Fall Apart.... In Other Countries Too, Not Just Africa

So I thought I would draw a parallel between the fragmented pieces of Saleem Sinai's world and those of a  character like Okonkwo's. In both stories, there is political and social upheaval which causes destruction to their respective communities. Both books deal with outside (and inside) sources that shatter their worlds. Especially with all of Saleem's worries about cracking off piece by piece, I think this book could also easily be called Things Fall Apart.
