From the Booker Prize shortlisted author of This Mournable Body and Nervous Conditions

One of the BBC's 100 women for 2020

As Zimbabwe emerges into independence, Tambudzai Sigauke embarks on her second year at the Young Ladies' College of the Sacred Heart. Determined to excel, Tambu exhausts herself with her efforts to climb to the top of the school's honour rolls. The further she pushes herself, however, the further she feels from any reward, and the roots of colonialism threaten to trip her at every step. The sequel to Nervous Conditions is as moving, darkly witty and riveting as its predecessor.
