Zimbabwean-born, Perth-based Frank Cole is faced with an unusual request in his mother’s will. He must journey back to his country of birth to deliver a substantial inheritance from his mother to a former family servant, Lettah Ndlovu. Set in Zimbabwe in the year prior to the 2008 elections, this is a very personal journey set against a political canvas. Drawing on an incisive portrait of modern Zimbabwe—its social and political issues, its recent history, and its conflicts between different tribal groups—this gripping novel of discovery and redemption offers action, romance, danger, and humor against an exotic and often confronting African setting.

Book Description University of Queensland Press, Australia, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Step into the heart of modern-day Africa in this compelling story of hope and redemption. Failed writer Frank Cole can barely remember Lettah. When his family left Zimbabwe, their beloved servant was gradually forgotten. Now, forty years on, Frank has been set a mysterious task in his mother s will- he must find Lettah and deliver her bequest. What Frank finds is not the country of his childhood, but a place where memories of civil war and colonial injustice fester beneath the surface, where brutality stands for the law, where fear and farce preside. But is chaotic Bulawayo, Frank discovers life and humour among unlikely companions - friends from his youth and new acquaintances, old Rhodesians and young liberals, all those who stayed behind. As he pieces together Lettah s fate, Frank begins to see the new Zimbabwe - and himself - in the delicate chemistry between meaning and hope. Seller Inventory # BTE9780702238994
