About the book

This book is the first single collection of Memory Chirere’s short stories. Here, unique voices engage with a wide range of issues at the heart of Zimbabwean society in particular, and that of southern Africa in general, searching for, and negotiating towards, the ‘confluence’ of short story, fable and poem. All the characters here want something intensely and whether they win or lose, they tend to merge and walk back into the ever-intriguing Zimbabwean socioscape.

Memory Chirere teaches Creative Writing and African Literature at the University of Zimbabwe’s Department of English. He is a firm believer in ‘the short story’.
