For her second book, Zimbabwean author NoViolet Bulawayo tried to write nonfiction about the 2017 coup of Robert Mugabe—what came out instead was the Booker Prize-nominated novel Glory, a bombastic satire in the riotous spirit of Orwell’s Animal Farm. Buckle up.

“By aiming the long, piercing gaze of this metaphor at the aftereffects of European imperialism in Africa, Bulawayo is really out-Orwelling Orwell. This is a satire with sharper teeth, angrier, and also very, very funny.” – New York Times Book Review

Check it out at Seattle Public Library. Please consider buying your Bushwick choices with their local bookstore partner, Third Place Books.
