We love: Yvonne Vera

“I would like to be remembered as a writer who had no fear for words and who had an intense love for her nation.”
p13
“Time is as necessary for remembering as it is for forgetting. Even the smallest embrace of pain needs time larger than a pause; the greatest pause requires an eternity, the greatest hurt a lifetime. A lifetime is longer than eternity; an eternity can exist without human presence.”

Yvonne Vera (1964-2005) one of Zim’s most esteemed writers, nominated for the commonwealth writers prize 1994, and her book Butterfly Burning was chosen as one of the best 100 books of the 20th century in 2002 by the German Literature Prize.

“Art can make a difference because it pulls people up short. It says, don’t accept things at their face value; you don’t have to go along with any of this; you can think for yourself.”
