    I have to get a disclaimer out of the way at the very beginning The author, Tendai Huchu, has a very special place in my heart as he was the first author to trust me with his book when I was just starting out with my blog about three years back But I will try to be fair and impartial with my review.I had thoroughly enjoyed Mr.Huchu s first two works of fiction An Untimely Love and The Hairdresser of Harare especially the second one So I

    Tendai Huchu is a remarkable, perceptive and engaging writer This is a seemingly aimless story about Zimbabwean exiles expatriates living in Edinburgh at the beginning of the 21st century There is however nothing aimless about this story as it is brought together by the surprise at the end It is the story of three Zimbabwean men, two black and one white, struggling to come to terms with living in Edinburgh, an alien city in a cold climate I

    Top marks for a rabbit out of hat surprise ending Who d have thought anything else of Alfonso The Maestro s death makes sense, what with his need for freedom and finally flying free, but the Mathematician s end makes no sense, doesn t tie into anything and feels abrupt and unplanned This book is well written with the chapter dividers as the characters separate stories that make for ...

    This is a very different book from the engaging Hairdresser of Harare The first chapter is from the point of view of the Magistrate , a reasonably sympathetic character but nothing really happens Viewpoint then switches to a student This is well done with a cha...
