Be prepared to laugh, shed tears, and marvel.--Yiyun Li
A gripping account of revolution and its aftermath.--Viet Thanh Nguyen, author of The Sympathizer
Ambitious and ingenious.--Dinaw Mengestu
An enthralling novel that has it all: pathos, humour, and an insightful engagement with the history of Zimbabwe. With audacious style, Tshuma manages to step over the pitfalls that would swallow a lesser talent, and in so doing announces herself as a huge talent.--Brian Chikwava, author of Harare North
House of Stone is the novel devastated Zimbabwe needed to have written. Now Novuyo Tshuma has written it. Bayethe to her scintillating talent! In the most original and fearless prose I've read in years, Tshuma's scheming narrator, Zamani, reveals the personal and political disintegration that was Zimbabwe's undoing.--Tsitsi Dangarembga, author of Nervous Conditions
House of Stone is that rare thing, a truly original work of art whose author's risk-taking pays off on the page. Zamani is a complex, compelling, and ambiguous narrator. Utterly stunning.--Tendai Huchu, author of The Maestro, the Magistrate and the Mathematician
