What Happened to Us


In lean, lyrical prose – reminiscent of the work of J.M. Coetzee and Cormac McCarthy – Zimbabwean writer Ian Holding delivers a mesmerising coming-of-age tale of guilt and responsibility set within the fault-lines of modern Africa.

“Reminiscent of the hallucinatory lyricism of Michael Ondaatje or Chris Abani.” — The Daily Beast

“Extraordinary ... as audacious as it is surprising.” — The Daily Mail

“Expansive and definitive ... atmospheric and thought-provoking” — The Guardian
