Savant Books Releases Tendai Mwanka's Novel "Keys in the River"

Savant Books Announces the Release of Tendai Mwanka's Novel "Keys in the River"

Keys in the River is a cycle of stories about economically-challenged, politically-torn, and disease-ridden Zimbabwe, told as if the reader were sitting and listening to neighbors and friends talking about life. Some stories are tender, even comic; in others, tragedy and outrage lurk. The stories share a common thread, a noble stance in the struggle to find love, freedom, justice, completeness, and satisfaction.

The author, Tendai Rinos Mwanaka, was born in 1973, in Nyanga, Nyatate, Mapfurira village, in the remote eastern highlands of Zimbabwe. He is the author of "Voices from Exile," a collection of poetry on Zimbabwe's political situation and exile in South Africa (Lapwing Publications, 2010). He has written numerous articles and won several awards. "Logbook Written by a Drifter," and "Voices from Exile" were both short-listed for the Erbecce Press Poetry Prize in 2011 and 2009, respectively. He was nominated for a Pushcart Award twice, once in 2008, and again in 2010, as well as commended for the Dalro Prize in 2008. He has published over 200 short stories, essays, memoirs, poems and visual art productions in over 100 magazines, journals, and anthologies in the following countries: USA, UK, Canada, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Cameroon, Kenya, India, Italy, France, Spain, Cyprus, Australia and New Zealand. He lives and stays in Chitungwiza, Zimbabwe.

"In the spirit of self-promotion and with a wink and a playful smile, I recommend to you 'Keys in the River'," says Mwanaka. "Put on some good music, place some tasty food within reach, then let yourself sink into the stories. Let the ideas growl within your consciousness. Challenge all your perceptions about Africa and Zimbabwe until even your new perspective becomes a howling, mangy dog. Now you know modern Africa. I prescribe 'Keys in the River' is the best medication for people suffering from this exhausting, frustrating and high-strung twenty-first-century world."
