The Rain Drop and Other Shades of Prosetry
The word "prosetry" does not exist. But the author of this book of prosetry uses it to describe "the presentation of prose in a manner that attempts to depict the aims and objectives of poetry." The Rain Drop and Other Shades of Prosetry is written in five sections. The first is "The Rain Drop" and tells of an author who has just achieved great success. He reflects back on an embarrassing incident that happened when he was six, and which comes to mind whenever it rains. The second story, "The Priest", is about a man who became a priest by accident, but grows to love his chosen profession. Then he is presented a great temptation when he meets a woman who resembles a girl he loved as a teenager. "The Cricketer" shows the game through the eyes of an experienced player, one about to go through a very unusual experience during a cricket match. In "The Driver", the anxieties of an aging Formula One racecar driver show what happens during what could be the last year of his racing career. In the fifth and final story, "The Admirer", the anguish of a young man who has fallen madly in love with a girl he has never spoken with is told in prosetry. Author Patrick Mandidi is inspired by the research employed by James Michener, his favourite author. Originally from Zimbabwe, Mandidi is a retired banker who now lives with his wife in Mozambique. He has started on his next book, which discusses the teachings of the Bible. Publisher's website: http://www.strategicpublishinggroup.com/title/TheRainDropAndOtherShadesOfProsetry.html.
