A mother in Zimbabwe writes a long letter to her daughter, who is on the way to America to study at Harvard, tracing the family's role in Zimbabwe's struggle for independence and what it means to be an African woman. Reprint.
Written as an extended letter from a black Zimbabwean mother to her daughter leaving for a university place in America, this refreshing and poignant first novel draws back a veil to reveal life in Africa today. Using the lyrical African tradition of dialogue through storytelling, she weaves her tales into a complex fabric of experiences and so reveals the texture of her culture and the rich colours of her own life. The stories, a blend of traditional African folklore, personal tragedy and candid observations, speak of the beauty of love and passion, the burden of oppression and the pain of loss. Through Zimbabwe`s fight for independence, ZENZELE reveals the inner struggles of a woman to render comprehensible the contradictions of the revolution and define a role for herself as a woman and mother.
A collection of letters from an African mother to her daughter in America, urging her to remember her roots.
This is a children's story which provides a basis for parents, teachers and mentors to give life lessons. It is simple but profound on many levels. First and foremost it presents to young minds, the idea that what we do to others, we must be prepared to face ourselves. It provokes thought, consideration and character building in an entertaining way. It exposes young minds to the age old style of African story telling for the present age in a simple language and form as universal as the story itself.
