Award-winning author Yvonne Vera is one of Zimbabwe’s most acclaimed writers and social critics. The New Yorker calls The Stone Virgins “haunting.”

After decades of guerrilla war, Rhodesia finally succeeded in severing the reigns of British colonial rule. But by 1982, the leadership of Robert Mugabe had led the country toward a horrifying outbreak of violence and brutality. The effects of the liberation are still being confronted today.

    " her prose is really poetic, colorful, beautiful. but the story is kind of dark. weird contrast.. but somehow works. looking forward to reading some of vera's other work. but unfortunately won't be any new stuff. she died of (what many assume to be) AIDS :( "

    " This is a disturbing but poetic and beautifully written book. Reading it is like being in a trance, but it also gives a glimpse of the reality in Zimbabwe, which I could never understand! "
