    Penguin Modern Classics: The House Of Hunger

    By: Dambudzo Marechera

    "I don't hate being black. I'm just tired of saying it's beautiful."

    Irreverent and uncompromising, Dambudzo Marechera rejected what he saw as the narrow stereotypes of African literature, and was a fearless critic of his country. He made an immediate impact with 'The House Of Hunger'.

    In this semi-autobiographical work, the narrator expresses his desperate alienation - from his brutal family, from his student friends, from the squalour of township life and from Zimbabwe itself. This novella, and the other short stories here, portray a world of madness and chaos in an explosive style that flashes with both violence and humour.
