Tonderai: Studying Abroad in Zimbabwe

Perrin Elkind



Perrin Elkind brings the people and culture of Zimbabwe into sharp focus for the Western reader. Having immersed herself in Africa, she so vividly communicates her experience that she alters our view of the developing world.


[Elkind's] evocative and beautifully written account of her stay in Zimbabwe transports the reader to a different social and cultural space. Her account of personal change through her rich experience is so thoughtful and powerful that we are changed as well. -Paul Joseph, Tufts University
