Bryony Rheam's debut novel, 'This September Sun', has been chosen as one of the 50 books by African women that everyone should read before they die. The list has been compiled by Dele Meiji Fatunia and Zahrah Nesbitt-Ahmed ahead of Africa Writes - the Royal African Society's annual literary festival - which is possibly the UK's largest celebration of African books and literature.
Bryony joins other Zimbabwean women writers on the list - Yvonne Vera, Tsitsi Dangarembga, Zukiswa Wanner and NoViolet Bulawayo.
'This September Sun' won Best First Book at the Zimbabwe Book Publishers Awards in 2010 after being published in Zimbabwe by 'amaBooks and went on to be published in the United Kingdom by Parthian Books. It is soon to be published in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and South Sudan by Longhorn Press.
