This Mournable Body by Tsitsi Dangarembga 304 pages (2020) This is the last of a
triology by Dangarembga set in Zimbabwe. The first book was Nervous Conditions (1988); The Book Of Not (2006) was the sequel. In this last psychologically charged novel about the obstacles facing women, Tsitsi Dangarembga channels the hope and potential of one young girl and a fledgling nation to lead us on a journey to discover where lives go after hope has departed. A review in the NYT called it “a masterpiece.” The 2020 Booker Prize shortlist.

All are welcome to these discussions. Join us for one or for all. While we normally meet in the sanctuary on second Saturday mornings, and then often go out to lunch afterward, this year—for now at least— we’ll be zooming through cyberspace. So you can join us from wherever you are!
We’ll be using my Zoom account, and I’ll send out a new invitation each month. If you’re interested in joining our discussions and are not already on my email list, contact me with your information and I’ll add you to it: That’s to Dorie Maxwell: doriemaxwell@mac.com or 561-301-4204.
