The writer Doris Lessing lived for may years in what is now called Zimbabwe. She had communist leanings and that was cause for the British Secret Service to follow her closely, over a period of twenty years. The files have been opened.

I enjoy reading about Africa. New books. Old books. By African writers. By non-African writers. Novel. History. Travel. Biographies. Autobiographies. Politics. Colonialism. Poetry.
