Short Writings from Bulawayo II

  • Paperback
Short Writings from Bulawayo II is a collection of short stories and poems from 22 contributors that take the reader on a journey through the townships of Bulawayo, to the rural areas and beyond. It would be unforgivable in today's Zimbabwe to publish as anthology that did not reflect the struggles of the people to survive oppression and the way that cultural expectations impact on their daily lives. As well as pathos, there is often humour in the closely observed portrayals of township denizens. A common theme in the pieces is the singular fortitude of Zimbabweans in the face of adversity. The reader has only to dip into this collection to get a feel of life in present day Zimbabwe. "The book is a must read for insights into the Zimbabwean consciousness. It is dynamic, real, seasoned with humour and bursting with creative energy from some of the country's most talented writers". - Chipo Chitonga, The Zimbabwean
