    Book details


A Wreath For The Dead is an anthology of shortstories and poems about life in colonial and post- colonial Zimbabwe. Its main themes are thefragilityof hope and the often overwhelming nature ofdestitution and despair.The anthology was commencedin 1998 and it was inspired at the time by twodeaths in the family: my father in 1995 and mybrother Edward [whom I loved dearly] in 1998. Atthetime it was simply a collection of poems aboutbirth , life and inavoidable death and the titlewasWastelands. After a couple of years of writingmostly poetry, I began to compose short stories.Initially the idea was to write a semi- autobiograohical work tracing one's life fromchildhood, through youth to adulthood. That becametoo painful and i found that I could not writeaboutcertain things unless I presented them as purefiction. Once I introduced fiction into this semi- autobiography the stories came thick and fast.

I hold a Bsc Degree in Political Science and Public Administration and a Post-Grad Diploma in Project Planning and Management [University of Zimbabwe] and have an LLB [UNISA] and am currently studying for a BA in Psychology. A Wreath For The Dead is my first book, inspired by my childhood and life and events in both colonial and post-colonial Zimbabwe.
