We Need New Names, by NoViolet Bulawayo - review

I first came across this novel first when studying for my degree, but it was only recently that I got around to reading it. This novel really pulls you in, and is especially topical in light of recent events in Zimbabwe. 373 more words

[Books] We need new names - NoViolet Bulawayo

My reading resolution for this year is to read as many books as I can get my hands on from other continents, except Europe. We need new names is one of these books and I found it after doing a bit of online research on the best fiction books in Africa. 216 more words
