Tapiwa Zvakavapano

A thousand kings

Explore the fictional world that arises from the day to day strangeness of life in Zimbabwe. A thousand kings is a collection of edgy modernist short stories by Tapiwa Zvakavapano,a Lemba Jew of Zimbabwe. The stories, while reminiscent of Latin American magic a, Kafkaesque futility, and Chekhovian characterization, are Zvakavapano's awakening and disturbing brand of accounting for contemporary disjunction. The plots are rarely Jewish in explicit content, although readers will recognize the Jewish tradition of literary fiction as it has developed within the Lemba community of Zimbabwe.
