Nataka Books Reviews: 

These Bones Will Rise Again

Panashe takes us on a journey through her memories of her grandmother, the modern history of Zimbabwe as experienced through a young girl and the family lens without getting into the military and psychological damage but focusing instead on the impact of displacement, travelling, migration and futures built elsewhere while homes remains that home where it is hoped that 'These Bones Will Rise Again'. Narrated through the first person, this work cannot be boxed into memoir, biography or poetry. Let the power of stories, as they are, captivate you. You do not need a category.
