Here we meet Tambudzai, living in a run-down youth hostel in downtown Harare and anxious about her prospects after leaving a stagnant job. At every turn in her attempt to make a life for herself, she is faced with a fresh humiliation, until the painful contrast between the future she imagined and her daily reality ultimately drives her to a breaking point.

In this tense and psychologically charged novel, Tsitsi Dangarembga channels the hope and potential of one young girl and a fledgling nation to lead us on a journey to discover where lives go after hope has departed.



This Mournable Body is a story of triumph, not despair., New York Times

Dangarembga gives us something rare: a sparkling anti-heroine we find ourselves rooting for., The Washington Post

Searing and enlightening. Tsitsi Dangarembga has delivered a highly anticipated, devastating portrayal of a woman who, like her country, endures a continuous path of destruction. -- Sefi Atta, author of EVERYTHING GOOD WILL COME

Finally, Dangarembga's highly anticipated third novel is here. This Mournable Body is worth the wait, and Tsitsi Dangarembga has written it beautifully and compellingly. A must read for every lover of African fiction. -- Helon Habila

Heartbreaking and piercing . Tambudzai is an outstanding and memorable character . This is a smartly told novel of hard-earned bitterness and disillusionment. -- Publishers Weekly

A haunting evocation of the nature of small defeats. Only a writer steeped in Zimbabwean life - with her unflinching gaze fixed on the individual, and with a social vision that brooks no sentimentality - could have given us the fraught heroine of this starkly written novel. Tsitsi Dangarembga proves yet again that hers is a maverick voice. -- A Igoni Barrett
