Three Writers discuss Zimbabwean Literature Culture

Christopher Mlalazi, Emmanuel Sigauke and Tinashe Mushakavanhu discuss the state of Zimbabwean literature, writing from the Diaspora, what is African literature among other literary issues. In this candid roundtable discussion, they question the direct nature of literature and its suitability in chronicling moments of unique political and social significance. In a country like Zimbabwe, which exists to the West as a flurry of news reports and political upheavals, literature attains an importance that it rarely enjoys in Britain or America: it becomes a necessary thing, essential to the survival of the self.

The complete interview is featured in the Sentinel Literary Quarterly:
