THIS IS AN NJR - NOT JACKET BLURB, DO NOT USE IT THIS RAW FORM -This new and original work is the only recent monographic treatment of the Zimbabwean novel and its political implications.

She has published extensively on Zimbabwean literature, and brings to her work a deep contextual richness as well as theoretical sophistication.
