Outstanding story of life in Rhodesia and post-colonial Zimbabwe
It's an excellent book about life in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe, since 1980, for those not in the know), through the eyes of a white African. I've read many books on Rhodesia and Zimbabwe, so have decent basis for comparison...this book might be the best so far. Godwin goes into graphic detail on certain subjects but also brings a lot of humor to the table. There are tragic moments, of course...but from start to finish, it's a good story and I found it hard to put down.
