This Mournable Body
Zimbwabe. Sometimes a novel lets readers go to a place we’ve never been, spend time with people who seem very different from us, and come away with a fresh perspective about our shared human experience. In her novel titled, This Mournable Body, Tsitsi Dangaremgba writes about the aftermath of the transition in Zimbwabe from colonialism to capitalism through the experiences of protagonist Tambudzai Sigauke. In finely written prose and deep insight into human nature we feel the grief and struggle that Tambu faces as her world changes. Having left her village for a better life, her return home reveals how much has changed and how much has remained the same.
