"Butterfly Burning" brings the brilliantly poetic voice of Zimbabwean writer Yvonne Vera to American readers for the first time. Set in Makokoba, a black township, in the late 1940s, the novel is an intensely bittersweet love story. Vera captures the ebullience and bitterness to township life, as well as the strength and courage of her unforgettable heroine.
