House of Stone Cover Image

A couple's son has gone missing, and their lodger, the strange and often poetic Zamani, gives them hope that he can find the young man. The orphaned Zamani is intent, however, on insinuating himself into the parent's lives perhaps taking their son's place and prying with wily ways into each of their intimate dark secrets. Perhaps this is a set up for a thriller, but this stunning novel turns out to be an epic reckoning with Zimbabwe's past, from colonial Rhodesia to the present strongman government, and the enduring scars of genocide. Hard to believe this is a first novel by Tshuma, she has a mesmerizing style and dark humor and has created unforgettable characters in this complex and sweeping story.
