Summary
Winner of the Edward Stanford Prize for Fiction with a Sense of Place, 2019 Longlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize, 2019 Skinny's Book of the Year, 2018 'Extraordinary' Guardian Bukhosi has gone missing. His father, Abed, and his mother, Agnes, cling to the hope that he has run away, rather than been murdered by government thugs. Only the lodger seems to have any idea. Zamani has lived in the spare room for years now. Quiet, polite, well-read and well-heeled, he's almost part of the family - but almost isn't quite good enough for Zamani. Cajoling, coaxing and coercing Abed and Agnes into revealing their sometimes tender, often brutal life stories, Zamani aims to steep himself in borrowed family history, so that he can fully inherit and inhabit its uncertain future
Summary
After their son, Bukhosi, disappears in the chronic turmoil of modern Zimbabwe, Abednego and Agnes Mlambo receive help from their enigmatic lodger, Zamani
