He commemorates the clutch of an affectionate family in an oppressive society. He marvels as his parents make the necessary compromises with a brutal, all-powerful system without compromising their honor. And he recalls his brief infatuation with a charismatic young revolutionary named Mugabe—until his uncle’s ultimate sacrifice points him to a more authentic meaning of freedom.
