Summary, etc.:
"African by birth and now a journalist in New York, Peter Godwin returns to his family's home in Zimbabwe to find a nation coming apart: what he had known as the continent's most prosperous and best-educated country has become a nightmare of poverty, brutality, and corruption. Yet his parents refuse to leave. As Godwin struggles to understand this resistance, he uncovers a shocking secret--the truth about his father's identity and past experience of persecution--that opens a new window on the present crisis. This dramatic memoir, at once sweeping and intimate, tells an unforgettable story of resilience and the enduring power of love."--Back cover.
