Tense, compelling Zimbabwean tales in Behind Enemy Lines short stories

Tense, compelling Zimbabwean tales in Behind Enemy Lines short stories
 
Joe Ruzvidzo, author of Behind Enemy Lines, a collection of short stories set in Zimbabwe Isobel Sinosi

In this month's Africa: Stories in the 55, Zimbabwean author Joe Ruzvidzo explores coming-of-age in the years after the Liberation War, in his short story collection, Behind Enemy Lines.

 

Ruzvidzo writes on the cutting edge-- his characters pawns or kings, depending on the readers' perception.  In "The Order", set in 2023, Ruzvidzo's story of a military takeover of the country reveals some interesting parallels to Zimbabwe's own recent history and new president. His characters live through bullying, love, even deception by a parent, packing a seven-story punch with a bonus ending poem.
