The book is a re-theorisation of the Zimbabwean literary field, written against the background of ongoing “fast-track” land re-appropriations of the early 2000s. The key works by Chenjerai Hove, Tsitsi Dangarembga, Nozipo Maraire, Shimmer Chinodya, Alexander Kanengoni and Yvonne Vera are analysed in detail. The Journal of Commonwealth Literature 42 (2), 2007, states: “Primorac’s monograph emerges as the most significant and wide-ranging account of [Zimbabwe’s] recent fiction”; Neil ten Kortanaar’s review in Interventions 10 (2), 2008, calls it “an important and very illuminating book”
