Blurb:
Moving between the vibrant townships of the poor and the suburbs and country retreats of the rich, The Book of Memory is a compelling, contemporary tale of love, obsession and the cruelty of fate.
Memory is an albino woman, languishing in prison in Harare, Zimbabwe. At nine years old she was adopted by a wealthy man -- a man whose murder she is now convicted of. Facing the death penalty, she tells the story of the chain of events that brought her there. But is everything exactly as she remembers it?
*******************
A brilliant novel I read a few months ago - and picked for the UK Uncon's book swap game.
(A previous reader started underlining things and adding comments - but fortunately only on the first pages.)
