They Are Coming (Zimbabwe)
READ IT BECAUSE: You are wanting to read something from Zimbabwe. But really if you are just going to read one thing from Zimbabwe, I would recommend We Need New Names--my review of it is here (LINK COMING SOON).
Look, this wasn't the best thing I've ever read but it was an important read because it forced me to think of the idea of family outside the normal western version. In this story's case, a township family struggles as a rebellious daughter joins a local militia before the approaching 2005 parliamentary elections. So in this case, They are Coming is about the locality of all politics but moreso it's about what it means to grow up amidst uncertainty and violence.
