2 African novels;

In Tsitsi Dangaremba's book "Nervous Conditions" she writes about the life 
of a fairly contemporary Zimbabwean girl and her relationships within her 
traditional community and in the world promised by white Christian 
missionary schools.

Nozipo Maraire has written the novel "Zenzele: A Letter for my Daughter" 
written in the style of parables relating the challenges and trials of 
negotiating African traditions and Western influences.

Best wishes,
Mary
