Kelli Robinson (kellifrobinson) I have edited and added to a Listopia list of books set in Zimbabwe here: Books Set in Zimbabwe. I compiled the list from this thread plus other suggestions and recommendations found elsewhere on Good Reads and the Internet. Feel free to vote for your favorites and/or add books that I missed!
