Long Time Coming brings together short stories and poems from thirty-three writers that provide snapshots of this turbulent period in Zimbabwe's history. Snapshots of living in a country where basic services have crumbled: where shops have no food, taps no water, banks no money, hospitals no drugs, bars no beer. Snapshots of characters surviving against seemingly insurmountable odds.


It is little short of miraculous that, despite disease, oppression that is the reality of today's Zimbabwe, writers are writing and publishers are publishing. 'amaBooks deserve the highest possible praise for doing so. - New Internationalist
