Book Review: This Mournable Body by Tsitsi Dangarembga

This Mournable Body by Tsitsi Dangarembga

“There is a fish in the mirror. The mirror is above the washbasin in the corner of your hostel room.”

The opening lines of a book I love for its fractured intensity. Reading it is like being plunged into a bruise, one that stains Zimbabweans everywhere.
