Short Writings from Bulawayo II is a collection of short stories
and poems from 22 contributors that take the reader on a journey
through the townships of Bulawayo, to the rural areas and beyond.
It would be unforgivable in today's Zimbabwe to publish as
anthology that did not reflect the struggles of the people to
survive oppression and the way that cultural expectations impact on
their daily lives. As well as pathos, there is often humour in the
closely observed portrayals of township denizens. A common theme in
the pieces is the singular fortitude of Zimbabweans in the face of
adversity. The reader has only to dip into this collection to get a
feel of life in present day Zimbabwe. "The book is a must read for
insights into the Zimbabwean consciousness. It is dynamic, real,
seasoned with humour and bursting with creative energy from some of
the country's most talented writers." - Chipo Chitonga, The
