Thank you Ross for sharing your memories
with us, both in 'Flame Lily Weeps' and 'Present'. I laughed and cried
as my childhood came rushing back to me over the pages. Some things
which had been forgotten, came rushing back in an 'easy read' book
devoid of the usual political comments.
I passed both books on to my sister who
NEVER reads books and she read both of them in one day and her comment
was 'awesome' when she gave them back to me.
There you go - if you want me to
elaborate more, let me know!
About this book
This unique autobiography describes the life of a white Zimbabwean growing
up in Rhodesia, Zimbabwe-Rhodesia and subsequently after the attainment of
independence on 18th April 1980, in Zimbabwe, and, thereafter, his move and
settling in the UK. It provides a comfortable, quick read and is not meant
to be an exhaustive, family, historical or political account. Instead, it
was born from a desire to reveal and elucidate the perspectives and truth of
poignant issues in the country’s transition from a British colony to an
independent, one-party state. This book gives an insight into the build up
to the political and economic anarchy that has thrown Zimbabwe into a
financial abyss and that transformed the bread basket of Africa – a one time
flourishing country into a land ravaged by hunger, disease and poverty.
