We Need New Names: A Novel

by NoViolet Bulawayo

Little, Brown And Company | May 21, 2013 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

We Need New Names: A Novel is rated 4 out of 5 by 2.
Darling is only 10 years old, and yet she must navigate a fragile and violent world. In Zimbabwe, Darling and her friends steal guavas, try to get the baby out of young Chipo's belly, and grasp at memories of Before. Before their homes were destroyed by paramilitary policemen, before the school closed, before the fathers left for dangerous jobs abroad.<_u13a_p>

But Darling has a chance to escape: she has an aunt in America. She travels to this new land in search of America's famous abundance only to find that her options as an immigrant are perilously few. NoViolet Bulawayo's debut calls to mind the great storytellers of displacement and arrival who have come before her--from Zadie Smith to Monica Ali to J.M. Coetzee--while she tells a vivid, raw story all her own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Darling Debut Actual rating 4.5 stars Totally engaging the whole way through. Moving without being too depressing. Humourous but also poignant. I want Darling to narrate every book I read from now on.
