0 Reviews
The third in the prize winning Short Writings from Bulawayo series - a collection of 25 short stories and 7 poems about life in Zimbabwe. In the collections are writers who have stayed in Zimbabwe, who have passed through, or who live in the diaspora. "Here, the realities of society are captured in motion, as they happen, with the socio-economic hardships in Zimbabwe today continuing to offer a fertile template for literary works. The short stories and poetry collected here are a reflection of the diversity of cultures, races and generations from which Zimbabwean writers come." - Phillip Chidavaenzi, Sunday Mirror
