Description

Memory, the narrator of The Book of Memory, is an albino woman languishing in Chikurubi Maximum Security Prison in Harare, Zimbabwe, where she has been convicted of murder. As part of her appeal her lawyer insists that she write down what happened as she remembers it. As her story unfolds, Memory reveals that she has been convicted for the murder of her adopted father. But did everything happen exactly as she remembers?

Professional reviews

"A stunning novel about crime and memory from Guardian First Book award-winning author, Petina Gappah. Petina Gappah is a Zimbabwean writer whose debut, An Elegy for Easterly, won the Guardian First Book Prize. ‘Mistress of crushing irony and acerbic humour... this is a fiercely indignant and justly cynical work' SUNDAY TIMES on An Elegy for Easterly ‘Gappah's lightness of touch and excellent sense of humour moderate some of the gravest moments' DAILY TELEGRAPH on An Elegy for Easterly"
