In this short poetic novel Alexander Kanengoni relates the traumatic history of those who fought to create the modern Zimbabwe. He portrays a war so violent and chaotic that it had a dehumanising effect on all those who took part. Can the damage to the psyche caused by such a war ever be fully repaired? Or is Zimbabwe to descend into a silence that denies the past? In this novel Kanengoni weaves together incidents in the life of Munashe, a young man who joined the guerrillas with high ideals, to express the insanity which can engulf a nation.
