5.0 out of 5 stars Better Understand Africa with this Sensitive Masterpiece, 29 Jun. 2008
This review is from: When A Crocodile Eats the Sun (Paperback)
This is the second of Peter Godwin's two books on his family's experience of Rhodesia-into-Zimbabwe. You would do well to read them in the reverse order; the Crocodile followed by Mukiwa. Mukiwa on its own or read first is but an interesting account of Godwin's earlier life in the white-haven of Rhodesia and of his growing awareness that change was inevitable and deserved. There are many such accounts. However if read as an epilogue, Mukiwa, confirms the right of Godwin to be the author of Crocodile and explains his perceptive insight. Crocodile is a must, a disturbing must-read. Identity, you will learn, applies not just to the person but to a nation, in this case to the African nation. I have bought and given away three copies and have now to buy a third because none is being returned.
