Read full description of the books:



Phephelaphi on elämäniloinen nuori tyttö 1940-luvun mustassa zimbabwelaisessa slummissa. Hän rakastuu itseään huomattavasti vanhempaan Futbathaan, joka on sananmukaisesti kalastanut hänet joesta. Phephelaphin äiti on ammuttu julmasti, mutta silti tyttö kokee elämänsä olevan täynnä mahdollisuuksia ja vaihtoehtoisia tulevaisuuksia. Itsenäinen Phephelaphi luulee hallitsevansa omaa kohtaloaan, mutta slummin rajoittunut todellisuus leikkaa hänen unelmiltaan pian siivet. Tyttö joutuu huomaamaan, että kaikki mitä hän luuli tietävänsä omasta elämästään onkin valhetta. Hän joutuu valitsemaan itsenäisyytensä ja kuoleman välillä. Phephelaphin tarinan kautta romaani paljastaa apartheidin raadolliset kasvot muutaman vuosikymmenen takaisessa Zimbabwessa.

Read information about the author

Ebook Palava perhonen read Online! Yvonne Vera (September 19, 1964 – April 7, 2005) was an award-winning author from Zimbabwe. Her novels are known for their poetic prose, difficult subject-matter, and their strong women characters, and are firmly rooted in Zimbabwe's difficult past. For these reasons, she has been widely studied and appreciated by those studying postcolonial African literature.

Vera was born in Bulawayo, in what was then Southern Rhodesia, to Jerry Vera and Ericah Gwetai. At the age of eight, she worked as a cotton-picker near Hartley. She attended Mzilikazi High School and then taught English literature at Njube High School, both in Bulawayo. In 1987 she travelled to Canada and she married John Jose, a Canadian whom she had met while he was teaching at Njube. At York University, Toronto, she completed an undergraduate degree, a master's and a PhD, and taught literature.

In 1995, Vera returned to Zimbabwe and in 1997 became director of the National Gallery of Zimbabwe in Bulawayo, a gallery that showcases local talent ranging from that of professional artists to school children. In 2004 she went back to Canada, where she died on April 7, 2005, of AIDS-related meningitis.
