“A Tragedy of Lives: Women in Prison in Zimbabwe” takes us through the lives of female prisoners in Zimbabwe. Edited by Chiedza Musengezi, founder and director of Zimbabwe Women Writers and Irene Staunton, publisher at Weaver Press, the format of the book brings together prisoners and writers, as each woman interviewed was done so by a member of Zimbabwe Women Writers. Tracked down by a writer, these women were often difficult to find, and the process of interviewing them was indeed also difficult, as recalling their past proved painful for many.??

Review by Father David Harold Barry
To visit prison is not to visit some alien place, cut off from ‘normal’ society, where problem people are locked away. If you visit prison you quickly realise you are looking into a mirror of society itself. In fact, to visit a prison is to come starkly in touch with the country we have created for ourselves.
