About the Book

One Foreigner’s Ordeal is a story of how a Zimbabwean civil servant; a teacher, is caught up in Zimbabwe’s economic implosion. It chronicles his flight into South Africa and depicts the new challenges that beset him in the new environment. Among these is the search for documentation enabling him to stay in the country legally, xenophobia and the all elusive search for employment. The book is alive. The characters are so real one can feel them and almost touch them. Once I started reading it, I could not put it down. - Tsitsi Dzinoreva Lecturer in African Languages and Literature – Great Zimbabwe University. Written with an eye for detail and a sense of humour any reader will find impeccable and refreshing…a must read for serious lovers of literature. - Mika Nyoni Lecturer English – Great Zimbabwe University.
