Without a Name and Under the Tongue

Yvonne Vera

1stPublisher: Farrar Straus GirouxFormat: Paperback

In Without a Name (1994), Mazvita, a young woman from the country, travels to Harare to escape the war and begin a new life. But her dreams of independence are short-lived. She begins a relationship of convenience and becomes pregnant. In Under the Tongue (1996), the adolescent Zhizha has lost the will to speak. In lyrical fragments, Vera reveals the story of Zhizha's parents, and the horrifying events that led to her mother's imprisonment and her father's death. With this novel Vera became the first Zimbabwean woman ever to deal frankly with incest. With these surprising, at times shocking novels Vera shows herself to be a writer of great potential.
