Behind Enemy Lines and Other Stories

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Behind Enemy Lines is a collection of stories about ordinary people and anti-heroes dragged into a search for meaning in their lives – whether it is a simple search for identity and love, or a bigger struggle for Africa's political freedom. The canvas of their actions, motivations and circumstances is a Zimbabwe of the past, present and future. Humorous, acerbic, funny and tragic, the stories cover the whole gamut of emotions.

"A lovely little collection of stories. Ruzvidzo sets aside the grand social and political themes common in certain African writing. Instead, he captures those understated moments of everyday life. The stories are compelling in their warmth and humor. Even where they explore tragic moments, the humor, drama, and suspense are there to lighten the impact on the reader. Keeps his writing grounded in a way that readers will find relatable." - Brittle Paper

"Stories that are bursting from the pages with life and wit, set alight by Ruzvidzo's colourful and heartfelt writing. Ruzvidzo does well to absorb the reader into the worlds he has created - his stories are rooted in the contemporary culture, politics, and landscapes of the nation." - Harare News

"When I met Joe, too many years ago, all he did was drink, smoke and talk. Now I know why. There was a writer in there somewhere. All he needed was some life to write about. He has lived a juicy chunk of that life and written with the authority of one who has lived almost too well. Long may he yet live. And write." - Telford Vice, author of In the Nick of Time: Peter Kirsten's Life in Cricket.

"Joe Ruzvidzo has arrived on the scene with a deceptively simple and lucid storytelling style that pleases and surprises." - Chris Kabwato, columnist and writer-creator of radio drama, Inspector Mavis
