Zimbabwe has always been rich in fiction writers, and to the names of Dambudzo Marechera, Doris Lessing and Tsitsi Dangarembga can be added that of NoViolet Bulawayo, whose first novel has been long-listed for this year’s Man Booker Prize. We Need New Names (Reagan Arthur Books) is a coming-of-age story that moves between a Zimbabwean shantytown and Detroit. Bulawayo’s sharply observed debut marks the arrival of a major voice in contemporary fiction. novioletbulawayo.com.
