Recommended for: People interested in Zimbabwe
Read in August, 2008

This book is a really interesting look at Zimbabwe from an ex-pat. He is living in the U.S., but trying to care for his aging parents in Africa during tumultuous times. There are some unexpected family secrets which emerge and create a new dimension to the story. There is a lot of commentary on the course that Zimbabwe has taken during the author's lifetime that is interesting, but not fascinating. I liked it, but always hoped for a little more I suppose.
