Alongside Shimmer Chinodya, he is perhaps the best writer to portray how life rolls in modern Zimbabwe. Favorite stories were "White Stones and Red Earth," "The Mountain," "The Brother," "The Victim," and "The Setting Sun and The Rolling World."
Note: This book combines two earlier short story collections---Coming of the Dry Season and Some Kind of Wounds.
