Bulawayo, NoViolet: Glory

SHORTLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE 2022

*** SHORTLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE 2022 ***
** FEATURED IN THE TIKTOK BOOK CLUB**

'A gloriously rambunctious satire of tyranny, oppression and rebellion, with global relevance' Guardian

From the Booker-shortlisted author of We Need New Names, Glory is the story of an uprising, told by a bold, vivid chorus of animal voices that help us see our human world more clearly.

A long time ago, in a bountiful land not so far away, the animal denizens lived quite happily . . .
And then the colonisers arrived, followed by a bloody War of Liberation. New hope came in the form of a charismatic horse who ruled and ruled and kept on ruling. For forty years he ruled, with the help of his elite band of Chosen Ones. Until one day, as he sat down to his Earl Grey tea and favourite radio programme, in came a new leader, a new regime. And once again the animals were full of hope.

Glory tells the story of a country seemingly trapped in a cycle as old as time. At the centre of the tumult is Destiny, a young goat who has returned to her homeland to bear witness to revolution. Her arrival sets off a chain of events that reminds the denizens, and us, that the glory of tyranny only lasts as long as its victims are willing to let it. And that history can be stopped in a moment.
