This is both a personal and a political story of life in Zimbabwe from the 1950s through to the present day. When Godwin, a New York journalist, goes to Zimbabwe to visit his parents, he learns about his family’s history, including a secret that changes his perspective on life. A fascinating read about people living in a turbulent time.
