9 out of 10

From the back: Harvest of Thorns is an important novel by one of Zimbabwe's msot talented young writers. It marks a milestone in the history of Zimbabwe's war of liberation as documented and recounted by its writers and story-tellers. (...)
Harvest of Thorns is a novel of great significance which will give all those who read it a greater understanding of the road along which Zimbabwe has travelled, as well as indicate many of the directions ahead.
_____

The novel was first published in 1989, nine years after independence and still before the Mugabe regime turned to the worst we can observe for two decades now. Therefore the euphoric tone of the blurb above may sound strange but reflects the still optimistic point of view regarding the future. Apart from that it provides the reader with an interesting in-depth view to the guerilla warfare in the last years of Rhodesia.
