Black sunlight by Dambudzo Marechera( Book )

26 editions published between 1980 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In an unspecified setting the stream-of-consciousness narrative of this dark and visceral cult novel traces the fortunes of a group of anarchists in revolt against a military-fascist-capitalist opposition. In evocative flashes, sex, violence, war, myths and ideologies explode in a labyrinthine plot, viewed through the camera lens of a photojournalist known only as Christian. In Dambudzo Marechera's second experimental novel, he parodies African nationalist and racial identifications to show that notions of an 'essential African identity' were often invoked across Africa to authorise totalitarian regimes. Such irreverent, avant-garde literature was criticised upon publication in Zimbabwe in 1980, and Black Sunlight was banned on charges of 'Euromodernism' and challenging the concept of nation-building in the newly independent country."--Book cover

Scrapiron blues by Dambudzo Marechera( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a collection of Marechera's last writings, evoking city life with its many disparate facets - from the glittering fashion shops in First Street Mall to the tramps in the alleys, and in Marechera's only known piece in Shona, "The Servants' Ball." What at first sight seems peaceful and harmless, is suddenly disrupted by flashes of madness for, in Marechera's universe, everyday life is always haunted by the nightmares of Zimbabwe's past." "In "The Concentration Camp," Marechera gives a poetic, deeply felt voice to the dread experienced by former inhabitants of the "keeps," the restricted villages of Zimbabwe's War of Liberation. Often he takes a child's view to measure the horrors of adult society. Gentleness paired with sarcasm marks his hardly known children's stories."--Jacket
