Book Description FABER FABER, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Main. Language: English . Brand New Book. Shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award, this is an unforgettable collection of powerful stories by a stunning young voice from Zimbabwe.A woman in a township is surrounded by dusty children but longs for a baby of her own; an old man finds that his job making coffins at No Matter Funeral Parlour brings unexpected riches; a politician s widow stands quietly by at her husband s funeral as his colleagues bury an empty casket.Petina Gappah s characters may have ordinary hopes and dreams, but they are living in a world where a loaf of bread costs half a million dollars - a country expected to have only four presidents in a hundred years. In this spirited debut, Gappah evokes the resilience and inventiveness of the people who struggle to live under Robert Mugabe s regime whilst also battling issues common to all people everywhere: failed promises, unfulfilled dreams, and the yearning for something to anchor them to life.
