Irony and humour have always been used to counter frustration,
despair and to expose double standards. In these ten sharply
polished stories, Mandishona explores the dark comedy that lies
just beneath the surface of tragedy in Zimbabwean society in the
last decade. His perceptions leave few untouched: politicians, new
farmers, exiles, stranded queues and inflation that renders the
currency worthless... Truth and morality are dispensable in a
society where wealth is rewarded with respect, integrity marred by
untruth, rumour displaces fact, and power is only interested in its
own survival. Mandishona holds a mirror up to reality and without
equivocation asks us to look at what is real: the likeness or the
distortion and what it is we want to see.
