Mukiwa: A White Boy in Africa

by Peter Godwin

In Brief

The true story of a young boy growing up in Rhodesia as the world he thought he knew and understood is turned upside down. Mukiwa recounts Peter Godwin's journey to come to terms with the turmoil that erupts in his homeland as the colonial era comes to a brutal end.

Why you should read it

There may be no better book to explain the state of Zimbabwe now. This is a moving and beautifully written personal story that illuminates an entire African epoch.
