Bones – Chenjerai Hove




Bones is a powerful, heart-rending novel that provides a sensitive evocation of Marita, a farmworker, whose only son joined the freedom fighters in Zimbabwe’s war of liberation. He does not return after the war and Marita is determined to find him or find out what happened to him. This is perhaps a single clear theme in a landscape where women, particularly the poor and the marginalized, suffer many layers of oppression.
