Not Another Day

by Julius Chingono

Julius Chingono’s short stories and poems illuminate the everyday world of his native Zimbabwe: the buzzing townships, and the rural homestead. Depicting characters who face poverty, tragedy and violence with strength and courage, the author brings a ready humour to otherwise bleak situations, and a sharp eye to events and encounters in the country. Chingono’s acute awareness of the many absurdities of the society in which he lives ensure his place as a life-affirming chronicler of its development.

'His stories enable you to look at your own society with a detachment that lets you laugh.'  

Shimmer Chinodya

'Zimbabwe’s story, with all the political, economic and social problems, would make for a grim reading. But the beauty about this collection is that Chingono consummately sidesteps choking us with a heavy dosage of tragedy. He however opts to give us a chance to laugh at ourselves despite all our problems, and some of the absurdities –– dressed as culture –– in our lives. His large sense of humour is enormous and makes for a pleasurable read.' 

Sunday Mirror, Zimbabwe

"Not Another Day is a compelling read. It is highly recommended."
