Set in modern day Zimbabwe, and spanning the thirty years since the overthrow of British rule, THE HOUSE OF STONE is a sweeping epic about the death of colonial Rhodesia and the bloody birth of Zimbabwe, and the painful legacy of revolution.
"House of Stone is a striking, striding, rambunctious novel...a book of bold size and wide scope, of moral seriousness and very real political consequence. I admire the pyrotechnics of Novuyo's prose, her audacity and her vision to write Zimbabwe's modern history in a single work; I love that she has the hefty, strutting talent to pull it off. She's sharp-edged, sharp-tongued and so very wise, her view on her country clear-sighted and radically angry, her narrator a creation that stands alongside the great wall-eyed, amoral characters of literature, from Raskolnikov to Ripley." - James Roxburgh, Senior Editor, Atlantic Books
