An Elegy for Easterly

A woman in a township is surrounded by children yet longs for a baby of her own; an old man finds that his job making coffins at a funeral parlour delivers unexpected riches; the wife of a politician stands in dignified quiet at her husband’s funeral as his colleagues bury an empty casket. Ordinary men and women with hopes and dreams in a country torn apart by economic hardship and the political dysfunction of Robert Mugabe’s regime. Zimbabwean author Petina Gappah’s award winning short story collection has distinguished her as an exciting new voice in literature.
