Township Girls

The Cross-Over Generation

Farai Mpisaunga Mpofu, Nomsa Mwamuka & Wadzanai Garwe



This collection comprises the stories of women who grew up in two countries, Rhodesia, prior to Independence and Zimbabwe post-1980. The contributors reflect on their childhoods with refreshing candour. Many of their memories retain the crystalline clarity of childhood and thus provide insights into worlds that have often remained unexplored.
