What Happened to Us

UK Publisher: Little Island Press

In the fiery environment of an election season, with tensions stoked by an unrelenting heatwave, Danny Walker goes about the business of being a carefree boy. But when a horrific act of violence is visited on his family, his sense of innocence is shattered and his grip on reality slowly begins to fracture.

In lean, lyrical prose – reminiscent of the work of J.M. Coetzee and Cormac McCarthy – Zimbabwean writer Ian Holding delivers a mesmerising coming-of-age tale of guilt and responsibility set within the fault-lines of modern Africa.
