Without a Name

Yvonna Vera

In Zimbabwe, in 1977, in the midst of the guerrilla war raging against the white minority regime, a young woman escapes her war-ravaged village to go to the city, Harare. But the city has its own perils, and takes away considerably more than it offers. A moving, uncompromising novel, written in Vera’s graceful poetic style, about the horrors of war and oppression in the modern world and their effects on the individual soul.

WINNER OF THE COMMONWEALTH REGIONAL PRIZE.

“Probably one of the most serious female writers to come from this country [Zimbabwe] in the decade and a half of independence.’’
—The Herald
(Harare, Zimbabwe)
