Not an easy book to read.

At only 112 pages long, Chenjerai Hove’s Bones is by no means small in context or theme. Rather, it is a complex story often looking concurrently into the future and the present. Hove’s style of writing is outstanding and unique in its own right: poetic in nature and employs the traditional Shona way of telling a story. In fact, the narrative is more akin to telling children a story in the night-time gathered around fire. In that way, every child listening to the storyteller has a chance of both listening to the story and contributing to it.

Bones tells the story of a Zimbabwean farm-worker, Marita, looking for her only son who has gone on to fight in the Zimbabwean War of Liberation as a freedom fighter. Marita is a strong and courageous woman, a farm worker who promises herself to be happy when she finds her son, the freedom fighter

Chenjerai Hove (born February 9, 1956), is a Zimbabwean poet, novelist and essayist who writes in both English and Shona. "Modernist in their formal construction, but making extensive use of oral conventions, Hove's novels offer an intense examination of the psychic and social costs - to the rural population, especially, of the war of liberation in Zimbabwe." 1989 Winner, Noma Award for Publishing In Africa, for Bones.
