Writing Now

A sequel to the award-winning Writing Still, this new collection of stories paints an engaging – and sometimes challenging – picture of contemporary life and concerns in Zimbabwe.

Like its predecessor, Writing Now combines well-established writers – Chinodya, Mupfudzi, Eppel, Chingono – with several new voices. Although the stories emerge from lives of economic hardship and privation, their tone is by no means uniformly downbeat.

Zimbabwean writers continue to demonstrate that sharp humour and surreal fantasy can grow from the bleakest of roots.
