Walking Still

Charles Mungoshi


This book is on the list of Zimbabwe's 75 Best Books of the Twentieth Century.


This collection of short stories covers a range of characters and settings which portray people whose lives have been challenged by war and its aftermath, by changing cultural values, and by family commitments in a world that has lost its certitude. Relationships and locations are concrete, visual, cinematic. The stories question notions of value and responsibility.


[Mungoshi], one of Zimbabwe's finest writers, is at his best here. His clear and sophisticated style is well known from his ten books in English and in Shona. - Nadezda Obradovic, World Literature Today
