Bulawayo Burning

If there's one thing, rather two things you must know about the great Professor Terence Ranger is his deep love for one of Zimbabwe's finest writers, Yvonne Vera and Bulawayo (the city with the bluest skies!), hence he named his book Bualwayo Burning after Yvonne Vera's Butterfly Burning, a beautiful novel set in 1940s Bulawayo about a young Black woman who dreams of becoming one of the city's first African nurses in order to escape the poverty of the ghetto. While Yvonne Vera focuses more on the personal experience of living in Bulawayo in 1948, Terence Ranger's book provides the historical backdrop of the text - fusing both historicl and literary styles of writing. I look forward to reading this book as it's been in the pipeline for some years now, since before Yvonne Vera's tragic and untimely death in 2005. The book is available for pre-order through James Currey in the UK incl. US & Europe and Weaver Press in Zimbabwe.
