Feminist and political prize winner set in the 1950s
on August 16, 2013
This is a rich and powerful book in which the main themes are the early signs of the women's movement, which would not get traction for another twenty years, the way women's friendship works, the death of the Communist Party (of which the two main women were members from the time they were in their teens) and the colonial experience in Rhodesia as it was then, now Zimbabwe. I had it on the back burner for a long, long time, and am now thoroughly enjoying it.
